The Chargé in Bolivia ( Hibbard ) to the Secretary of State

57. I am reliably informed that the military junta in Bolivia is negotiating with the military junta in Peru for mutual recognition.8 Bolivia hopes thus to secure favorable modification of the terms of the treaty between Chile and Peru.9 A member of the junta or a confidential agent will probably leave for Lima early next week. The Peruvian Chargé leaves for Lima Monday. He tells me he will endeavor to prevent any modification of the treaty.

Repeated to Lima.
