The Secretary of State to the Minister in Haiti (Armour)

No. 247

Sir: Reference is made to the Department’s instructions Nos. 237 and 238, both of November 17, 1934,41 in regard to the reciprocal concessions [Page 330] that might be provided for in the proposed trade agreement between the United States and Haiti. In this connection, there is enclosed a copy of a draft trade agreement,42 containing Schedules I and II,42a which has been transmitted to the Haitian Minister here for the consideration of his Government. This draft is for your confidential information. Further negotiations in regard to the proposed agreement will presumably take place in Washington; and it is understood that Mr. de la Rue will remain here for the time being to continue to advise the Haitian Minister in the matter.

Very truly yours,

For the Secretary of State:
Sumner Welles
