The Ambassador in Peru (Dearing) to the Secretary of State

87. My 81, March 2, 3 p.m.6 Diplomatic corps at meeting this morning decided to ignore Sanchez Cerro; to await notification from [Page 911] Foreign Office as to composition new junta before making any courtesy calls upon members of junta; and that present transitory junta and provisional junta presently to be formed are logical continuation of Sanchez Cerro government.

Most of colleagues and I feel meeting premature and ill-considered. British and Japanese state they wish to follow our lead regarding recognition.
