Memorandum by the Irish Minister (MacWhite)

On consideration of a satisfactory liquor quota being allocated to the Irish Free State, my Government undertakes, subject to consideration of prices and quality, to increase purchases of American wheat and to explore sympathetic possibilities of increasing purchases of other American products.

Quite recently the Irish Free State purchased a large quantity of its wheat requirements from the North Pacific Export Association. During the past week, 3, 100 bales of hops have been shipped direct from San Francisco to Dublin.
