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

No. 2166

Sir: I have the honor to refer to the Department’s airmail instruction No. 549 of December 10, 1935 [1934],4 requesting the Embassy again to present the matter of the reorganization of the Inter-American Highway Commission to the appropriate authorities of the Mexican Government, and in connection therewith to enclose a copy and translation of the Foreign Office’s note No. 667 of January 23, 1935.5 It will be noted that, while the Mexican Government feels that it is in a position to complete its part of the Pan-American Highway, it nevertheless expresses its willingness to coöperate with the United States and the countries of Central America to an end that the Highway may be terminated at an early date. The Embassy will be pleased to transmit to the Foreign Office any further information of a specific character such as that which is requested by the Mexican Government.

Respectfully yours,

Josephus Daniels
