The Minister in Guatemala (Geissler) to the Secretary of State

No. 1427

Sir: I have the honor to report, that in the matter of the application of Francisco Buch de Parada of Mexico, for an aviation concession, which had been discussed several times by me with the Secretary for Foreign Affairs of Guatemala, I sent, on February 17, a note verbale to the Foreign Office expressing, in conformity with the Department’s cablegram No. 13 of February 15, 8 p.m., the hope that the Government of Guatemala will not grant to anybody any preference, exclusive concession or monopoly, which would deny to citizens of the United States a fair and equal opportunity to compete, and that Dr. Matos informed me, by note verbale dated February 19, that the Government of Guatemala has denied the application of Mr. Buch de Parada.

Copies of the notes verbales are enclosed, together with a translation of the one from the Foreign Office.16

I have [etc.]
