The Finnish Minister (Åström) to the Secretary of State

Sir: With reference to our conversation yesterday relative to the third paragraph of the draft to an agreement for the postponement of payments due, under the terms of the debt-funding agreement between Finland and the United States of May 1, 1923, during the American fiscal year beginning July 1, 1931 and ending June 30, 1932, I have the honor to inform you that no Government of any foreign country is indebted to the Government of Finland in respect of war, relief, or reparation debts.

I should highly appreciate it if you would be good enough to bring the above information to the knowledge of the Secretary of the Treasury.

Accept [etc.]

L. Åström
