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

82. When your 62, July 21, 1 p.m., was brought to the attention of President Leguia yesterday he said that he saw no reason why Chile should not go ahead with the procedure mentioned therein.

[Paraphrase.] The President was gratified by this indication of good will on Chile’s part and added hopefully these words: “We will see how far she is willing to go.” [End paraphrase.]
