The Finnish Minister ( Åström ) to the Secretary of State

Sir: In the agreement concerning commerce, effected by exchange of notes on May 2, 1925, by the Government of Finland and the Government of the United States, the paragraph concerning its going into force reads as follows:

“The present arrangement, in so far as it concerns import and export duties, shall become operative on the 15th day after the day I shall have received your confirmation of this agreement; in respect of all other matters it shall become operative when the Government of Finland shall have notified the Government of the United States that the legislative measures necessary for the purpose have been completed in Finland.”

I have the honor to inform Your Excellency that as the legislative measures necessary now have been completed, the agreement has been made effective in all its parts, in Finland.

Accept [etc.]

L. Åström
