The Minister in Guatemala ( Hanna ) to the Secretary of State

No. 360

Sir: I have the honor to refer to Consul General Marsh’s despatch No. 53 of September 25, 1934,8 reporting certain changes in the Guatemalan Customs Tariff and to the Department’s telegram No. 31 of September 25, 5 p.m.

I have consulted with Mr. Marsh in this connection and he has informed me that the Customs duty, Index No. 484–1–08–05 referred to in the enclosure to the despatch under reference, is a new item, while the remaining items on which duty is to be collected at the rate of 15 centavos per kilo have all been reduced from 30 centavos per kilo.

Mr. Marsh assures me that the changes will not affect American imports to any appreciable degree and I am not, therefore, communicating with the Minister for Foreign Affairs in the premises.

Respectfully yours,

Matthew E. Hanna
