Mr. Speaker: I have to inform the House that I have received the following letter, addressed to the House of Commons, from the Peruvian Chamber of of Deputies, which, for greater accuracy, I have had translated:
Peruvian Chamber of Deputies,
December 31, 1943.
To the Speaker
of the House of Commons,
In their session of to-day the Peruvian Chamber of Deputies passed the following motion on the agenda:
The Peruvian Chamber of Deputies, in closing their session, express their great satisfaction at the heroic and fruitful triumphs of the allied armies in defence of human rights; render their tribute of admiration to the great leaders of democracy, President Roosevelt and Prime Minister Winston Churchill; offer sincere congratulations on the return to health of the courageous British Prime Minister; and in expressing these grateful resolutions offer their prayers to the Almighty that the final victory of the forces of good over the powers of evil may in the coming year illumine with Christian fellowship the peace and happiness of the world.
They also resolve that a copy of the present motion shall be sent to the House of Commons of the United Kingdom and to the House of Representatives of the United States of America in evidence of the popular sentiment in Porn and as a fresh loyal manifestation of their democratic declarations and of their cherished desires.'
In sending to Your Excellency a copy of the foregoing resolution, we reiterate our fervent wishes for the triumph of the United Nations as crystallising the victory of right and justice over oppression and force and as restoring in the world the guarantees necessary to humanity within the noble current of civilised life.
We offer, etc.,
(Signed) Carlos Sayán Alvaraz,
(Signed) Juan José Teves Lazo.

§ Perhaps the House will allow me to send a suitable reply?
