The Minister in Colombia (Caffery) to the Secretary of State

19. Minister for Foreign Affairs communicates Legation permission granted Lindbergh flight to Barranquilla and has telegraphed Barranquilla to make necessary arrangements. War Department stipulates usual Colombian flight permit proviso against carrying aerial photography apparatus.

I regard Lindbergh’s coming as extremely important for success of further Pan American negotiations in this country, in view of well known efforts of Scadta.

Please request Colonel Lindbergh inform me as soon as possible probable time of arrival. Repeated to Panama.
