The Secretary of State to the Ambassador in Mexico (Daniels)

59. Your No. 84, March 31, 5 p.m. I see no objection to your giving the names of persons known to you to have recently imported planes from the United States on behalf of or for sale to the Spanish Government.

The Department is in possession of apparently conclusive evidence which is now being investigated by the Department of Justice that … exported three planes to Mexico without having obtained [Page 582] export licenses. If our information is accurate, he has thus violated our law whether or not the planes are transshipped to Spain.
