President Doumergue to President Coolidge


PARIS, August 27, 1928–2:02 p. m.23 I very sincerely thank Your Excellency for your kindly sending me, and through me the representatives of the nations assembled in Paris, a message which evinces the great importance you so rightly attach to the solemn signing of the general compact renouncing war as an instrument of national policy. The fact that the ceremony is on this day celebrated in Paris comes from a desire which you put in a peculiarly nice form that of acknowledging the initial part taken by the French Government and its Minister for Foreign Affairs in bringing about the great project, the French nation is thankful for and proud of the honor bestowed upon it in the reception of the foreign plenipotentiaries can not forget that thanks are due to the skilful and conciliatory efforts of the President and of the Secretary of State of the United States for the manner in which the covenant was received by the leading nations of the world which befitted the trait of universality that makes its power and greatness. I therefore feel sure that I am voicing the sentiments of the original signatories of the treaty as well as those of the still larger number who will adhere anon, when I express to Your Excellency and your Government the thanks of the civilized world. I am, as you are, convinced that the act accomplished on this day responds to the innermost longings of all mankind.

war in the world, signed to-day in Paris by the nations which have accepted it thus marking a glorious stage in the history of humanity, will be, for all time, a legitimate source of pride to the great nation of the United States of America.

In fulfillment of the express instructions of the President, Mr. Augusto B. Leguia, and of his Government, I hasten to express to Your Excellency that Peru formally, and with sincere enthusiasm, adheres to the anti-war pact above-mentioned and that as soon as a certified copy thereof shall have been received, it will be submitted to the cognizance of the National Congress for ratification.

Peru, who has ever been a partizan of cordiality and peace in international relations and who aspires, therein, to nothing more than to the predominance and triumph of justice cannot remain indifferent to the position taken which the signing of the pact above referred to implies for the progress of mankind.

I would therefore request Your Excellency to be so good as to consider Peru and its Government as adhering to the transcendental treaty in question. Accept [etc.]
