Folder 1-8, Document 73


Washington, D.C.


April 22, 1909.

My dear Mr. Minister:

I am exceedingly sorry that you had a long wait at the Department this morning. I was engaged upon certain matters with the Secretary and it was absolutely impossible for me either to interrupt that particular business or to know at what moment I might be free to see you.

It is a matter of great regret to keep you waiting, and I would earnestly request that in the future, whenever you wish to give me the pleasure of seeing you, you will telephone in advance to make an appointment.

With many kind regards and apologies, I beg to remain, my dear Mr. Minister,

Very respectfully yours,


Mr. Felipe Pardo,
Minister of Peru,
The Shoreham.
