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


64. Your telegram No. 82, July 23, did not state that President Leguia undertakes to send a message to the Peruvian Congress, July 28, with regard to the reestablishment of diplomatic relations with the Government of Chile and that he will be prepared to sign a decree on the same date designating an Ambassador. The agreement is, of course, that both Governments take action simultaneously. The Peruvian Ambassador in Washington has received no instructions. Please confirm as soon as possible if President Leguia agrees to take the same action as the Republic of Chile on July 28 in order that the Department may communicate this to the Chilean Ambassador in Washington in time for the Government of Chile to take the proposed action the same day.
