The Ambassador in Great Britain (Harvey) to the Secretary of State

362. The representatives of Minor C. Keith and Blair and Company, are now here trying persuade the British holders of the 1908 and 1915 Salvadorean bonds to agree to the loan contract between the government of Salvador and Keith executed on June 24. The result of negotiations would be greatly aided if the Embassy would inform the trustee of the bondholders that the Department approved of the contract. Have you any objection? Please answer as soon as possible.
