The Chief of the Financial Division (Livesey) to the President of the Foreign Bondholders Protective Council, Inc. (Munro)

My Dear Mr. Munro: I have received your letter of December 17, 1943,90 and the Department is informing the American Embassy at Lima of the text of your telegram of December 17 to the Peruvian Minister of Finance.91

[Page 758]

The Embassy’s report of the Minister’s conversation with Mr. Orton indicates that the Minister at that time preferred to have conversations open without a prior statement by the Peruvian Government of the terms it might contemplate. The Department will, of course, be interested to be kept informed of any correspondence to which your telegram may give rise.

Sincerely yours,

Frederick Livesey
