STATE DEPARTMENT LETTER
August 26, 1921

To the Panama Minister of Foreign Affairs.

August 26, 1921.

1 have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of Your Excellency’s note of August 24, acknowledging the receipt of my notes addressed to Your Excellency under date of August 18 and August 23.

I have given careful consideration of the contents of Your Excellency’s note under acknowledgment and I am unable to find that any of the statements made by Your Excellency require further comment from me, in view of the fact that this Government, acting in accord with its obligations by reason of its special relations to Panama, has fully considered all the questions in the controversy, but has found no escape from the conclusion that the Governments of Panama and Costa Rica are bound by the arbitral award which was rendered after exhaustive examination of the opposing contentions by the Chief Justice of the United States. Panama and Costa Rica engaged, in the most solemn manner, to abide by this award.

It is my earnest hope that the Government and people of Panama will realize that the Government of the United States has acted in this matter in the most sincere friendship, animated solely by the desire to do complete justice and with the profound conviction that the surest safeguard of independence and territorial integrity lies in the faithful observance of international obligations.

HUGHES.
