“At the request of the Minister for Foreign Affairs I conferred today with him and the Minister of Agriculture. They asked what proposal of settlement I wished to submit on your behalf. I replied that some time ago I requested instructions, but not having received them I cannot submit a proposal. They made no offer. The Minister for Foreign Affairs in view of my having no proposal to make asked whether I would make a suggestion as to what should be done. I replied that in the absence of instructions I have nothing to suggest. He requested that I report the conversation to the American Minister. Signed Davidson.”
