Good offices of the Department of State in negotiations regarding an agreement between the Government of Bolivia and the Standard Oil Company1

1. Continued from Foreign Relations, 1939, vol. v, pp. 322 347.

[Efforts to reach a settlement of the Standard Oil Company dispute with Bolivia continued through 1940 without a solution being reached. For the most part, correspondence has been omitted covering the inconclusive discussions and the question of the sale outside Bolivia of oil from the disputed wells, on which question the United States reserved its rights under international law. The documents here printed show the proposals offered for a settlement by each party to the dispute.]
