The Ambassador in France ( Edge ) to the Secretary of State

123. My telegram No. 36, February 14, 1 p.m. I have heard informally from the Air Ministry that authority for the New York, Rio, Buenos Aires Lines and Pan American Airways to fly over Guadeloupe, Martinique and French Guiana will be granted May 15 for a period of three months, renewal subject to certain restrictions concerning photographic apparatus, interdicted zones and the carrying of mail, passengers and freight, between points within French possessions.

I am informed that the French Government will install fields.

I suggest that no publicity be given the foregoing pending official confirmation from the Ministry for Foreign Affairs.
