“I have the honor to inform Your Excellency that I have received instructions to say that my Government has observed with much satisfaction the progress which the Republic of Ecuador has made during the three years and more which have elapsed since the coup d’état of July 9, 1925, and the tranquillity which has prevailed in Ecuador during that period. Confident that the regime of Dr. Ayora represents the majority of the Ecuadorean people and is both capable and desirous of maintaining an orderly internal administration of the country and of scrupulously observing all international obligations, the Government of the United States is therefore pleased to extend to it as from this date full recognition as the Government de jure of Ecuador.”
