The Chargé in Estonia (Leonard) to the Secretary of State

9. With reference to the Department’s telegram of March 31 and my despatch No. 47 [407] of March 25,10 the Foreign Office has now sent the Legation a note stating that since negotiations of a trade agreement between Estonia and the United States could hardly be completed before May 22 the Estonian Government considers that the most practicable course would now be to extend the existing treaty until a new agreement could be reached but not later than May 22, 1939. The above note was prepared by Mr. Wirgo who has just returned from sick leave.

  1. Neither printed.
