The Secretary of State to the Director General of the Pan American Union (Rowe)

My Dear Mr. Rowe: With reference to the Project of Program for the Eighth International Conference of American States which was transmitted to the Governments of the American Republics in accordance with the resolution adopted by the Governing Board on March 9, 1938,32 I wish to inform you that the Government of the United States has no observations nor suggestions to present regarding that Project of Program. While this Government will be glad to participate in the conference on the basis of whatever agenda meets with the approval of all the Governments of the American Republics, such acquiescence will, of course, not be interpreted as implying that the Government of the United States will find itself in a position to support at the conference each project and topic now listed in the Project of Program.

Sincerely yours,

For the Secretary of State:
Sumner Welles
