The British Ambassador (Howard) to the Under Secretary of State (Olds)

My Dear Colonel Olds: I write to acknowledge receipt of your letter of December 31st, 1927, and to express to you my cordial thanks for the further information with which you have supplied me regarding the result of the negotiations undertaken in New York between [Page 176] Mr. E. D. Hutchinson of the Aguila Company, and representative of the Mexican Estates Company in Mexico, and Mr. Frank Feuille, attorney in New York for the Richmond Petroleum Company, with reference to the latter’s application for concessions covering lands in which the Mexican Estates Company is interested.

Very sincerely yours,

Esme Howard
