The Secretary of State to the Minister in El Salvador ( Corrigan )

No. 32

Sir: The receipt is acknowledged of your cablegram No. 49 of September 14, 4 p.m., stating that the Salvadoran Minister of Hacienda, in order to be able to study more intelligently the possibility of a trade agreement with the United States, desires to have a statement of the concessions which would probably be requested by the United States.

[Page 260]

In reply, you may inform the Minister for Foreign Affairs, for communication to the Minister of Hacienda, that the matter of the concessions to be asked by the United States Government is being studied, and that it is expected that a list of them will be ready for presentation to the Salvadoran Government within a few weeks.

Very truly yours,

For the Secretary of State:
Francis B. Sayre
