The Secretary of State to Mr. H. J. Roig, President of Pan American-Grace Airways

My Dear Mr. Roig: The Department was advised in a telegram dated July 23, 1941 from the American Embassy at Buenos Aires that commencing on July 24, 1941 the Condor air line would according to an announcement in the local press, institute a second weekly service between Santiago, Chile, and Buenos Aires, Argentina, with westbound trips on Mondays and Thursdays and eastbound trips on Wednesdays and Saturdays and including on all trips a stop at Mendoza, Argentina.

In furtherance of the general program for bringing about the removal of Axis influence or control over aviation in the other American Republics, it seems desirable that an additional service between Buenos Aires and Santiago be inaugurated by Panagra. The Department understands consideration is being given by Panagra to such a project and trusts that every endeavor will be made towards its successful completion.

Sincerely yours,

For the Secretary of State:
Adolf A. Berle, Jr.

Assistant Secretary
