The Ambassador in Panama (Wilson) to the Secretary of State

No. 38

Sir: I have the honor to refer to the Department’s telegraphic instruction No. 94, dated May 26, 7 p.m., and to previous correspondence regarding the provisional Panamanian registration of the ex-Belgian vessels Spidoleine, Lubrafol, Belgian Gulf, and Good Gulf.

The Embassy is now in receipt of a note from the Foreign Office, dated June 9, 1941, advising that by Resolution No. 96, dated May 31, 1941, the provisional registrations of the four vessels have been extended for six months from May 7, 1941, and that permanent certificates of registry shall be issued so soon as the requisite documents are received by the Ministry of Hacienda.

Respectfully yours,

Edwin C. Wilson
