The Secretary of State to the Ambassador in the United Kingdom (Winant)

3085. The Department has been informed that the Bolivian delegates to the International Tin Conference (Señores Antenor Patiño and Jorge Ortiz-Linares) are leaving by clipper on August 16 to participate in the forthcoming discussions, which, it is assumed, will center about the allocation of quotas for the coming year. The Embassy is requested to render all appropriate advice and assistance to the Bolivian delegates. The position of the Department with respect to the Bolivian quota was outlined in the Department’s 778 of March 8, 1941, 7 p.m., and this attitude is reaffirmed.
