The Ambassador in Panama (Dawson) to the Secretary of State

67. My telegram No. 65 of May 17, 4 p.m. Chile has replied favorably and the Panamanian Government is advised by the Uruguayan Government that the United States and Ecuador have accepted the original Uruguayan text. Through the Colombian Legation here Dr. Garay has requested that Colombia withdraw its suggestion regarding changes. He is now awaiting Colombian reply and hopes to be able to release joint declaration this afternoon. According to suggestion received from the Uruguayan Minister for Foreign Affairs the declaration will be addressed to no one and will be preceded by the following words: “The States of America adhere to the following protest relative to the violation of the sovereignty and neutrality of Belgium, Holland and Luxemburg.”
