The Chargé in Latvia (White) to the Secretary of State

No. 3739

Sir: I have the honor to enclose herewith 5 copies of the Valdibas Vestnesis official Gazette of the 28th of April containing the text in English and Lettish of the temporary Provisional Agreement for the most favored nation treatment of commerce between the United States and Latvia.1

I presume that by the time this despatch reaches Washington, the Department will already have forwarded either through this Legation or through the Latvian Legation at Washington, a draft treaty of commerce, friendship, etc. with Latvia. If not, however, I venture to recall that, as an inducement to the conclusion of the provisional temporary agreement, the prospect was always held out of the prompt initiation of negotiations for a permanent treaty as soon as the temporary agreement had been concluded.

I have [etc.]

J. C. White
