811.114 Liquor/1094

The Secretary of State to the French Chargé (Henry)

Sir: I refer to your note of May 20, 1936, concerning an amendment to the Liquor Tax Bill which provides for the use of certain wine names by American wine producers. This has also been the subject of oral conversations with you.

Your Government’s concern in this matter has been brought to the attention of the appropriate committees in Congress, and the problem has and will continue to receive the Department’s earnest attention.

Accept [etc.]

For the Secretary of State:
Francis B. Sayre
