The Minister in Ecuador (Long) to the Secretary of State

49. I have submitted to the Minister for Foreign Affairs the text of press release which accompanied Department’s instruction No. 126, June 15 which is satisfactory to him. Dr. Tobar informs me however that there is some probability the 30% plan referred to in previous correspondence will go into effect July 1. He has supplied me with a draft of the latter and thinks it would be well for the Department to understand its terms, after which he will be agreeable to publication of whatever release the Department deems to be convenient. Copy will be forwarded by air mail leaving here tomorrow.
