The Acting Secretary of State to the Minister in Bolivia ( Kaufman )

12. Representative of Standard Oil Company1 states that that Company is requesting permission from the Bolivian Government to establish a radio station at Yacuiba for communication with its home office in New York, and has asked for the assignment of short wave channels. The United States Federal Radio Commission has already assigned short wave channels for this circuit. You may informally advise the Minister for Foreign Affairs that the Department would be glad to see this additional channel of communication established between Bolivia and the United States, feeling that it would serve to draw the two nations closer together and strengthen their mutual interests. This of course with the understanding that the privileges granted to the Sandard Oil Company should not infringe upon the rights of any other American interests.
