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

No. 213

Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of the Department’s instruction No. 99, of April 6, 1935, enclosing the list of the [Page 544] concessions and assurances which the United States desires to obtain from El Salvador in connection with the proposed Trade Agreement between the two countries.

I have spoken informally with the President, the Foreign Minister and the Minister of Finance regarding the negotiation of this agreement, and encountered in each a disposition favorable to such a treaty. I have, however, considered it prudent to delay the presentation of the list of concessions and assurances desired by the United States, pending the conclusion of the conversations regarding the revision of the Loan Contract of 1922.10

Respectfully yours,

Frank P. Corrigan
