The Acting Secretary of State to the Chargé in Czechoslovakia (Gittings)

11. Your [Department’s?] 10, March 23, 6 p.m. Automobile representatives have been advised that Czechoslovak Government has now fixed import quota at sixty-three American cars monthly. In connection with representations pursuant to Department’s 10 you should state that fixation of quota on a monthly basis works considerable hardship both because of inflexibility and seasonal character of demand which is concentrated in spring months. You may add that American automobile interests have again made strong representations.
