The Secretary of State to the Peruvian Ambassador ( Velarde )

Excellency: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of Your Excellency’s note of December 22 last, informing me of the ratification by the Peruvian Government of the Boundary Treaty between Colombia and Perú.

The Government of the United States is very pleased to learn of this action, regarding it as further evidence of the desire of the countries of this hemisphere to settle their differences by pacific means and to live in peace and harmony with one another. It is particularly gratifying to this Government to think that it was enabled, through the Proces Verbal signed at Washington on March 4, 1925, to assist the Governments of Brazil, Colombia and Perú in arriving at a solution of their boundary difficulties which is satisfactory to all three countries.

Accept [etc.]

Frank B. Kellogg
