The Secretary of the Special Boundary Tribunal, Guatemala–Honduras (Cohen), to the Secretary of State

Mr. Secretary: The field operations of the aerial survey of certain portions of the disputed territory under adjudication by this Tribunal, ordered in the Ruling of June 29, 1932, have been successfully completed thanks to the invaluable cooperation of the U. S. Army Air Corps, the Department of the Interior and the Department of Commerce, which through your kind intervention agreed to lend their assistance to the Tribunal in mapping the area.

Upon being notified of this important event, both Agencies have requested that the Tribunal convey to the Government of the United States of America the sincere thanks of their respective governments for the generous help it has given in connection with the aerial survey.

The Tribunal directs me to reiterate to you its appreciation of the wholehearted assistance it has received, at all times, from the Department of State and its officials, both here and in the field, in the course of the proceedings for the determination of the boundary controversy.

I avail myself [etc.]

B. Cohen
