The Chargé in Honduras (Gibson) to the Secretary of State

No. 1413

Sir: I have the honor to enclose copies of the note of the Honduran Foreign Office12 listing the articles that they request be placed in Schedule II of the proposed Trade Agreement, in all cases free entry being requested.

The attention of the Foreign Office was called to the fact that it would be impossible to secure free entry on all of the articles requested, but that their request would be forwarded.

One item of special interest to the Foreign Office is that of woven hats (sombreros de junco, de cualquier clase y color), since it is desired to foster home industries.

In addition there is enclosed a translation12 of the list of articles requested by the Honduran Government, their paragraph number in the Tariff Act of 1930,13 and their duty under that Act.

Schedule I of the proposed Trade Agreement will be forwarded to the Department in the near future.

Respectfully yours,

Raleigh A. Gibson
