The Acting Secretary of State to the Minister in Austria ( Messersmith )

53. Your despatch No. 163, October 3, 1934. The Department concurs in your view that on the basis of available evidence you could not appropriately insist that Austrian authorities grant the Vacuum Oil Company a higher import quota for 1934.

Should any additional facts develop that put a different complexion on the case, please keep the Department advised.

Meanwhile should M. W. Bowen, the Company’s export manager who is in Europe, call, please extend to him any appropriate assistance.
