The Ambassador in Venezuela (Corrigan) to the Secretary of State
[Received 3:45 p.m.]
117. Ambassador Escalante came to the Embassy early this morning and informed me in strict confidence that the matter upon which he had come for consultation was favorably resolved yesterday at a meeting of the President and his Cabinet. The formula for action is being worked out and it seems likely that a special session of Congress [Page 1422] will have to be called (see my telegrams Nos. 52, January 23, 7 p.m., and 81, February 1, 7 p.m.) on account of strict constitutional limits to the power of the executive.
