The Ambassador in Spain (Weddell) to the Secretary of State

96. My telegram No. 94, April 23, 9 p.m.84 At the request of Serrano Suñer I called upon him this morning. The conversation was friendly throughout and I was given the following specific assurances: (a) that the annual meeting of the company’s stockholders may now be held and (b) “that the Spanish Government will abide by the terms of July contract with the company”.

Although no allusion was made to it I believe that this conversation was preparatory to my interview with the Caudillo on Monday.85
