The Secretary of State to the Minister in El Salvador (Corrigan)

No. 93

Sir: I am transmitting herewith for your confidential information one copy of the mimeographed report on Schedule I—El Salvador,8 presented by the Country Committee on Trade Agreements with Central America to the Trade Agreements Committee, and approved by the latter, with the changes noted in the text of the report.

[Page 541]

This report gives the factual background of the concessions and assurances which the United States is seeking from El Salvador in connection with the proposed Trade Agreement between the two countries. The confidential information contained in the report on possible recessions from our original requests is of course solely for your own information, since any departures from Schedule I as presented to the Salvadoran Government will have to be considered and acted on by the various committees and officials of this and the other Government Departments associated in the Trade Agreements program. There is naturally no objection to your using freely any of the purely factual information to clarify any doubtful points that the Salvadoran Government may bring to your attention, keeping the Department, however, closely advised.

Very truly yours,

For the Secretary of State:
Francis B. Sayre
