The Minister in Guatemala ( Geissler ) to the Secretary of State

No. 2538

Sir: Referring to despatch 2535 of August 7, 1929, I have the honor to report, that the Legation has been informed, that, on August 9, 1929, Mr. Carlos Irigoyen, local representative of the Latin American Airways, filed with the Minister of Fomento an application for permission to transfer the concern’s contract with the Government of Guatemala to the Pickwick Airways Incorporated, of California, and that he was told that the permission would be granted promptly upon receipt of an authenticated copy of the transfer. I beg leave to add, that today I received a cablegram from Mr. Lee C. Balch, Mexico City, saying that “transfer of Guatemala contract from Cia. Transportes Aéreos Latino Americana S. A. to Pickwick Airways a Delaware Corporation effected today before Notary Ramón Cosio González”.

I have [etc.]

Arthur H. Geissler
