The Secretary of State to the Ambassador in Bolivia (Boal)

1465. From Berle. No action has as yet been taken by the Treasury Department with respect to blocking Bolivian funds in the United States, with reference to your 2013, December 23, 8 p.m.

Because of Christmas, we are unable to get immediate instructions from the Export-Import Bank regarding the local funds of the Bolivian Development Corporation. The Department would suggest that Egger and other local American directors take no action or make any expenditures not in keeping with the regular operations of the Fomento Corporation. In a doubtful case, please cable for instructions. [Berle.]
