The Secretary of State to the Minister in Portugal (Dearing)

47. Commercial Cable Company states Cortes is likely to adjourn early in July and that unless form of concession for its landing rights at Azores is placed before Cortes for ratification before it adjourns an indefinite delay will probably result.

Urgently request Portuguese Foreign Office to submit to the Company’s representative a form of concession for the landing rights at the Azores which it desires and endeavor to have concession submitted to Cortes for ratification before it adjourns.
