[Translation]

Mr. Secretary of State: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of the note of the 13th instant in which Your Excellency communicated to me the text, agreed upon, of the reciprocal arrangement between Italy and the United States for the admission of civil aircraft into the respective countries, the issuance of pilot licenses, and the acceptance of certificates for aircraft and accessories imported as merchandise. This text, in the opinion of Your Excellency, is in accord [Page 629]with the understandings reached during the negotiations, now terminated, between the two countries.

The text communicated to me by Your Excellency is reproduced in Italian below:

[Here follows the Italian text of the arrangement, articles 1 to 10 inclusive, which is the equivalent of the English text communicated to the Royal Italian Embassy by the Department of State in its note of October 13, 1931, supra.]

I am glad to assure Your Excellency that the foregoing text is what has been accepted by my Government in the course of the negotiations and is approved by it.

In accordance with the suggestion of Your Excellency, it is understood that the arrangement will come into force on the 31st of October, 1931.

Please accept [etc.]

Marchetti
