The Secretary of State to the Minister in Ecuador (Long)

63. Your 64, April 17, noon.50 The Department understands that definite instructions have been issued by Ottawa to the International Petroleum Company to ship no more gas to Sedta. Perhaps the Ecuadoran Government will want to take the 150 drums shipped April 14 in partial repayment for the 200 drums lent to Sedta, especially in view of the possible shortage of aviation gasoline and probable increased demands by the Ecuadoran Government.
