The Minister in Honduras (Keena) to the Secretary of State

No. 39

Sir: I have the honor to refer to my despatch No. 28 of August 30, 193528 reporting the receipt of the proposed tentative final draft of the trade agreement with Honduras and stating that it would be submitted to the Honduran authorities as soon as a translation of it had been made.

The draft of the proposed agreement with an informal translation into Spanish of the text of the agreement and of its accompanying schedules was handed to the Minister for Foreign Affairs on September 4.

I called on the Minister for Foreign Affairs September 10 to inquire regarding the trade agreement. He said he had gone over the draft carefully but did not wish to make any comment until he had had an opportunity of discussing it with Dr. Lozano, Minister of Finance. Unfortunately Dr. Lozano has been suffering from a rather violent attack of grippe for the past week and could not be consulted on any official matter. It is expected that he will be able to return to his office within a few days.

Respectfully yours,

L. J. Keena
