[Page 806]
We are approving position on point 7 in separate telegram leaving only point 3 at issue on which we have instructed you fully. As soon as you report definitively on these two points we will have agreement on the text of the general provisions.
Spanish texts of Schedule I received this morning but we are still in doubt as to whether Nicaragua has agreed to Schedule I (with Notes I and II) in this form. No further progress seems possible here until we hear definitely from you on this question.
Our maximum concessions on Schedule II have been communicated to you.
Full powers are ready and can be telegraphed if needed.
