Washington, March 21, 1936—2 p.m.
16. Referring to the Legation’s telegram No. 23, March 18, noon.
- If Guatemala insists on insertion the Department prefers that “by exporter” be replaced by “made in the country of export.”
- Language quoted appears acceptable except that use of word “special” has restrictive connotation hence the Department would like to have it omitted or replaced by “other”.
- The Department hopes to have texts ready for submission to you by airmail next week.
