[Received March 29.]
My Dear Mr. Fletcher: I thank you for your letter of March 25th,2 advising me that the Department approves of our request to enlarge the International Committee of Bankers on Mexico by the addition of a representative from Belgium, the understanding being that effective control shall remain in our hands.[Page 494]
We have accordingly advised the British and French Groups that the American Group, with the approval of the Department of State, has voted favorably on the admission of a Belgian representative. We are also giving to the press a brief announcement covering the above.
Yours very truly,
