The Secretary of State to the Minister in Costa Rica (Sack)

35. With reference to your despatch No. 840, of September 6. You are authorized to accept binding of the present rate on flour in view of your opinion that insistence on a duty reduction will jeopardize conclusion of the trade agreement. It is hoped that this substantial modification of our position will clear the way for rapid and satisfactory conclusion of the agreement.
