The Danish Minister (Brun) to the Assistant Secretary of State (Castle)

No. 41

Dear Mr. Secretary: Shortly before your recent trip to Bermuda, from which I understand that you have now returned, you were good enough to say that you would cause a reply to be sent me in the matter of tonnage duties on Danish vessels in American ports.

My last note was dated February 14, 1928, and considering the many years this case has been pending and the very complete arguments which have been submitted on behalf of the Danish Government, I presume that I am justified in believing, that all officials concerned have now come to a definite conclusion in the matter.

I anticipate that this conclusion will confirm the Danish point of view and would indeed appreciate if I could now be so informed.

Believe me [etc.]

C. Brun
