The Acting Secretary of State to the Paraguayan Minister (Gondra)

Sir: I have the honor to refer to my note of February 7, 1919, relating to the application of the Construction and Engineering Finance Company of New York for a modification of the ruling of [Page 332] the President of Paraguay which had resulted in the alleged premature termination of the above named Company’s concession for the improvement of the port and river front at Asuncion. I beg to inquire whether you have received any expression of opinion from your Government upon this subject which may be communicated to this Department.

Accept [etc.]

For the Acting Secretary of State:
William Phillips
