The Secretary of State to the Ambassador in Germany (Wilson)

21. Your No. 91, March 5, 8 a.m. The report of such an alleged request to the Spanish Embassy has no basis in fact. We have no reason to believe that any arms have been exported to Spain since the embargo became effective in January 1937 or that the Spanish Government has made any efforts to purchase arms in this country since that time.18
