The Ambassador in Chile ( Culbertson ) to the Acting Secretary of State

80. Junta consists of President of Senate and Montero and Blanche of last week’s Cabinet. The one uncertain element is still army, which continues loyal to Ibañez, who now announces that he has temporarily withdrawn from office. Crowds have gathered in the main avenue and in front of the Embassy but there are no disorders. No Americans nor American interests have been molested.
