The Chargé in Spain ( Benton ) to the Secretary of State
[Received November 30.]
Sir: In confirmation of the Ambassador’s telegraphic despatch No. 94 of November 13th (12 noon), I have the honor to transmit herewith the copy of a Memorandum furnished the Embassy by Señor Calderon, the Chief of the Commercial Section in the Ministry of State, containing a list of what he terms Spain’s “trade grievances” against us, which, in the opinion of his Government, must be attended to before we can realize the advantages of the tariff reductions accorded France by the recent Franco-Spanish Commercial Agreement. A translation of the Memorandum is also enclosed.
