The Ambassador in Colombia (Lane) to the Secretary of State

692. I failed to state in my 687 yesterday: It was also agreed between President Santos and me that in event of necessity of General Andrews ordering United States Army or Navy craft to enter Colombian territorial waters General López would be immediately notified in detail regarding destination, description et cetera of the forces involved so that he in turn could at once advise the President.

Repeated to Panama for General Andrews.
