The Minister in Canada (Phillips) to Secretary of State

No. 365

Sir: Referring to the Department’s instruction No. 183, of March 20, 1928, on the subject of the Canadian embargo on peaches, and particularly with reference to the question of whether the Dominion Government might be disposed to lift the embargo for the province of Ontario, I have the honor to report that I made further inquiry this morning concerning the matter.

For the Minister:
H. Dorsey Newson

Secretary of Legation
