The Secretary of State to the Minister in Ecuador (Gonzalez)

23. Your 47, October 2, 9 p.m. In view of your report that the present administration apparently is firmly established, and in view of the note which you have received from the Minister for Foreign Affairs, which we assume is to be taken as an expression of the intention of the present Ecuadoran Government to fulfill its international obligations, you will please, after confirmation (which may be oral) by the Foreign Minister of the above-mentioned assumption, address a note to the Foreign Minister, in reply to his communication, stating that your Government will be happy to continue the cordial relations which it has maintained with the Government of Ecuador.
