The Acting Secretary of State to the Minister in Costa Rica (Sack)

27. Your despatch No. 1176 of June 19 and telegram No. 36 of June 24, 6 p.m.18 I believe it will be best under the circumstances for the time being for you not to pursue the negotiations further on your own initiative. While I am naturally most desirous to have Costa Rica participate in the trade agreement program, such participation of course should be the result of a whole-hearted and sincere desire on the part of the Costa Rican Government reached after mature consideration of all factors involved to cooperate in promoting the broad aims of the program.
