The Secretary of State to the Canadian Minister ( Marler )

Sir: I am transmitting herewith a copy of a provisional draft of an addendum30 to the tax convention between the United States and Canada of December 30, 1936. This draft is being transmitted to you for the consideration of the appropriate Canadian officials and for the formulation of such criticisms and suggestions as they may deem appropriate.

The Treasury Department has expressed a desire that negotiations for the conclusion of the addendum to the tax convention may be initiated at an early date. In the circumstances I should appreciate it if you will be so good as to inquire from your Government whether it will be agreeable to it to have the negotiations in question take place in Washington early in November.

Accept [etc.]

For the Secretary of State:
R. Walton Moore
