The Ambassador in Mexico (Daniels) to the Secretary of State

3. When I called on Minister Puig1 today he asked whether the Department wished the negotiations relating to tariff reciprocity agreements to be completed here or at Washington, and the time of such conversations. Please furnish information. He hopes within a week to enter into full discussion of the claims.2 He has directed his assistants, lately returned from Montevideo, and his legal staff to make a study of the suggested protocol and all phases of the general and special claims.

  1. José M. Puig Casauranc, Mexican Minister for Foreign Affairs.
