The Chargé in Colombia (Washington) to the Secretary of State

109. Department’s instruction No. 106, December 10th. The controversy over Rio de Janeiro Pact15 and the disagreements between the Executive and Congress regarding monetary problems for the next fiscal year make it improbable that action will be taken on the commercial treaty before the termination of the present extraordinary session of Congress on December 31st. Nevertheless it is possible that Congress will be called in session during January.
