The Acting Secretary of State to the Minister in Denmark (Coleman)

17. Your despatch No. 43, April 9, 1932. Your action in bringing these cases to the attention of the Danish Government is approved. Please report by telegraph whether the two cases in question have been satisfactorily adjusted and whether there have been any further indications of discrimination. If so, you are authorized to seek an interview with the Minister for Foreign Affairs and to make an energetic oral protest on behalf of and under instructions from your Government.

As you may have noted from the press the general question of discriminations against American trade, as reported from various countries, is under examination by the Department at the present time, in cooperation with the Department of Commerce and the Tariff Commission. Should you believe that an intimation to this effect would be useful, you are authorized to use the foregoing also.
