The Minister in Salvador ( Schuyler ) to the Secretary of State

2. Referring to most-favored-nation exchange of notes. The Minister for Foreign Affairs suggests informally as quid pro quo that United States shall grant Salvadorean and preferably all Central American sugar same rates as now given Cuban sugar. I have explained fully peculiar reciprocal nature of article 8 of our commercial convention with Cuba but he requests that I forward his suggestion to you.
