The Acting Secretary of State to the Ambassador in Chile ( Philip )
75. Your telegram No. 108, October 30, 3 p.m. Please telegraph before Monday morning the apparent reason for new gold rate and whether you regard it as discriminatory against American goods because most imports affected come from the United States or because a more favorable exchange rate is given imports of the same commodities from compensation agreement countries.
Also please telegraph any suggestions which you have as to form and content of possible representations.
