The Minister in Ecuador (Hartman) to the Secretary of State

Department’s December 9, 1 p.m.2 Contract for Italian loan will not be negotiated until arrival of another commission from Italy and any contract made must be approved by Congress. United States loan not being considered. I am of the opinion that recently enacted petroleum law has no relation to Italian loan. See my numbers 455 of November 5,2 466, of November 12 and 441 [458] of November 7.2
