The Ambassador in Paraguay (Frost) to the Secretary of State

225. Department’s No. 84 March 23, 8 p.m. Foreign Minister summoned me today and in presence of Minister of War informed me that Cabinet voted unanimously yesterday to authorize immediate airfield improvement work on condition of 20-year contract instead of 30 years. This was based on terms opened by Panair agent here as per my despatch No. 473 of March 28, 1942. Foreign Minister promised a written communication immediately.

I trust Panair may instruct its agent at once that this is satisfactory. Please telegraph.
