The Ambassador in Peru (Dearing) to the Secretary of State
[Received 2:15 p.m.]
72. Juan O’Connor, chief of Flying Service, has seized two Johnson-Shippee planes and ordered pilots Hay, Shippee and Johnson, over their protest, to make a flight with military officers to Pisco. I am protesting at once to Foreign Minister and asking release of planes and pilots. Major Allen5 is doing the same to Juan.
- Major C. J. Allen, Military Attaché.↩
