The Acting Secretary of State to the Chairman of the American Delegation ( Hull )
53. Your 35, December 7, 3 p.m. I congratulate you on having these proposals referred for later consideration. Should appreciate further information concerning reference to the Inter-American High Commission. Our Congress, as you will recall, failed to appropriate funds for the United States Section of the Inter-American High Commission for the present fiscal year because it “could find no justifiable reason for the continuance of the Commission” and the United States Section therefore ceased to function June 30 last. (See pages 98–100 of instructions to Delegation).10 Is it proposed to revive the Inter-American High Commission?
