The Ambassador in France (Edge) to the Secretary of State
[Received March 24.]
Sir: I have the honor to refer to my despatch No. 2357 of March 10, 1932, enclosing a copy of my informal communication of March 10 to the French Minister of Commerce, in which I requested that representatives of American industry be given the opportunity first to be consulted before French quotas were established in commodities of particular interest to us, and in which I also made certain representations about the proposed French quota upon machine tools.
For your information, I transmit herewith a copy and translation of the Minister’s reply.
