The Costa Rican Minister (Oreamuno) to the Secretary of State
Mr. Secretary: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your note of the ninth instant in which Your Excellency, referring to my note of the 26th of January [March?], expresses Your Government’s desire to be informed as to whether the Government of Costa Rica proposes to withdraw its acceptance of the Protocol of Signature and of the Statute of the Permanent Court of International Justice and also how it notified its decision to withdraw from the League of Nations.
In reply, I have the honor to say to Your Excellency under instructions from my Government that the Congress of Costa Rica did not give its approval to the Protocol of Signature or the Statute of the Permanent Court of International Justice and that therefore my Government considers that Costa Rica has not been and is not now a member of the Court.
Be pleased [etc.]
