The Swedish Minister ( Wallenberg ) to the Secretary of State

Sir: Referring to your letter of April 15, 1925, concerning Treasury Decisions issued March 10th and 14th, prohibiting the importation of certain merchandise manufactured and exported by or for the account of two Swedish firms who have refused to open their records to the agents of the Treasury Department, I have the honor, upon instructions received from the Minister of Foreign Affairs at Stockholm, to inform you that, despite the fact that the firms in question, for practical reasons, have now declared their willingness to meet the demands of the Treasury Department, the Swedish Government still maintains its standpoint in this matter, in so far as the principle involved is concerned, as expressed in a note from this Legation, dated March 28, 1925.

With renewed assurances [etc.]

A. Wallenberg
