The Minister in Bolivia ( Jenkins ) to the Department of State

238. Referring to my telegram No. 225 of August 28, 11 a.m. [3 p.m.] and previous correspondence concerning economic collaboration in development of national resources of Bolivia, Minister of Foreign Affairs has again asked very earnestly that the United States Government make some public statement regarding progress of arrangements to send down technical commission and this commission come with as little delay as possible. The Minister says that criticism of delay is growing in and out of Bolivian Congress and he is most anxious to announce here as early as possible when technical experts may be expected to arrive. I hope that the Department will be able to telegraph me some message to give to Dr. Ostria Gutiérrez.
