The Chargé in Spain (Crosby) to the Acting Secretary of State

33. Your 27, April 21, 2 p.m. Have just presented note and list to Under Secretary of State in absence of Minister in Geneva and in presence of Calderon as instructed.

After consultation and consideration with Commercial Attaché have not made any additions to list as specified by you.

I requested information as to how agreement would become effective and when. Under Secretary replied that this would have to be discussed with Ministry of Agriculture and that I would receive a reply next week. He suggested an exchange of notes or by decree. Am I authorized to execute exchange of notes on basis of note presented this morning? Should this method be adopted?
