The Chargé in the Kingdom of the Serbs, Croats and Slovenes ( Boal ) to the Secretary of State

[Paraphrase]

15. My telegram no. 12, May 4, 4 p.m. The Prime Minister sent for me today to ask whether the Government of the United States had given permission either to Blair & Co. or to the Foundation Co. to make a loan to this Government or had instructed me to support either company; he added that he had been advised by the Yugoslav Legation at Washington that this permission was necessary [Page 1004] before either company could make a loan. In reply I said that I had had no instructions or information from the Department in regard to this matter.
