The Chargé in Colombia (Greene) to the Secretary of State
[Received November 19.]
Sir: I have the honor to enclose herewith the text as published in the press and an English translation of a statement given to the United Press by President Santos late yesterday. This was published in prominent positions in all of the morning newspapers, whether United Press subscribers or not.
As the Department will note, the statement of President Santos is closely connected with that of President Roosevelt issued two days ago, the latter of which has received thoroughly favorable comment in all of the newspapers and from officials and other persons in Bogotá with whom I have had occasion to talk.
