The Ambassador in Peru (Poindexter) to the Secretary of State


100. Department’s telegram 84, November 30, 1 a.m. Your memorandum was delivered to the Minister for Foreign Affairs at 12:55 this afternoon and to President Leguía at 1:10, accompanied by statement in accordance with your instructions. The Minister thanked me for the memorandum and for the delivery of separate copies to him and to the President; he stated that he would give it his careful consideration.

President Leguía made no comment except to ask if it were proposition for settlement. I said yes, and added that I preferred that he get his first impression of it by reading the memorandum. He said he would, and nothing more was said.
