The Minister in Colombia (Caffery) to the Secretary of State

No. 2115

Sir: Referring to my recent reports having to do with the oil bill, and especially to those despatches having to do with recently developed opposition to that project, I have the honor to report that President Olaya continues to assure me that he fully appreciates that it is essential for the renewing of the prosperity of this country to have a satisfactory oil law on the statute books, and … that he is using every effort to persuade members of the two houses of Congress to appreciate the situation also.

Respectfully yours,

Jefferson Caffery
