who is "second in seniority"? his wife? or the Peruvian Ambassador himself?
On O Street the wife of the Peruvian Ambassador, second in seniority in the diplomatic corps, similarly called upon Jacqueline Kennedy's stricken mother.

The way it's worded, it could be either, although it seems unlikely that the wife would be second in seniority. Was there someone mentioned in a previous sentence who was more senior?
