The Ambassador in Chile (Sevier) to the Acting Secretary of State

111. With reference to the Department’s telegram 54, December 13, 5 p.m. We had a further discussion with the Under Secretary today and left detailed figures concerning American frozen credits and current trade which he is going over with a view to working out a proposal. I feel that we are making some progress and that the Government is now trying to find a way of giving us some satisfaction.

It has not been necessary to make the statement referred to in the last sentence of my telegram 109.
