The Peruvian Ambassador ( Freyre ) to the Secretary of State

Your Excellency: In reply to Your Excellency’s note of January 24, 1938, transmitting a tentative selection by the United States [Page 894] Navy Department of officers for the United States Naval Mission to my Government, I have the honour to state that the personnel suggested is in every way acceptable.

I furthermore wish to inform Your Excellency that I have been authorized to sign the agreement between our Governments for the said Mission. The terms of this agreement were submitted to my Government, who have signified their approval, with a few minor alterations already accepted by the United States Navy Department. I am therefore at Your Excellency’s disposal to affix my signature to the document.

Please accept [etc.]
