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

156. The Vice President and his party left here at 12:45 p.m. today for Cali. I felt that his visit to Panama has been outstandingly successful. Every act and aspect of the visit has taken place in an unusually friendly, cordial and informal atmosphere. The President of Panama15 remarked to me yesterday: “A visit like this really brings us closer together”. The press for the past 2 days has devoted itself mainly to accounts of the visit and to appreciative articles and editorials concerning the personality and views of the Vice President. Full report on press reaction follows.
