The Secretary of State to the Ambassador in Brazil (Morgan)


40. Department’s No. 38 of July 14, 5 p.m. Peruvian Congress convened July 28. President Leguía has assured our Ambassador that he will use all his influence to obtain ratification of the treaty, agreeing that this should be done at the beginning of the session and without delay. Ambassador Poindexter believes that the present is an opportune time to bring to bear all available influence, and that renewed representations on the part of Brazil would be advantageous. Bring the matter again to the attention of the Minister for Foreign Affairs and cable results.
