Memorandum of Conversation, by the Secretary of State

The Ambassador of Colombia38 called at his request and handed me a note, copy attached,39 setting forth the strong spirit of cooperation on the part of Colombia in defense of this hemisphere. The Ambassador emphasized the keen interest his Government felt in taking this course and its earnest desire to continue to cooperate in every way contemplated by the Habana and other preceding conferences.

I thanked him very profusely and emphasized our deep appreciation of this fine spirit of alert cooperation.
