The Chargé in Spain (Wiley) to the Secretary of State

57. Referring to the Embassy’s telegram No. 36, May 6, 5 p.m., a group of local representatives of American tire companies have called on the Commercial Attaché. They informed him that the Ministry of State has told them that the only question which was holding up the granting of most-favored-nation treatment by Spain [Page 554] to American products was the nonreceipt of a reply to the Spanish note of May 5 requesting an amplification of the list transmitted with the Embassy’s note of April 23.
