The Acting Secretary of State to the Dominican Ambassador ( Garcia Godoy )

Excellency: I have the honor to refer to your Embassy’s note, no. 4488, dated November 29, 1945,34 enclosing a list of cartridges and other equipment which the Winchester Repeating Arms Company has informed your Embassy it is in a position to supply to the Dominican Government, provided an export license can be obtained from the Department.

This matter has been given due consideration in the Department and it has been determined that the exportation of the ammunition in question would be contrary to the national interest. I regret, therefore, to inform you that an application for license to export the ammunition cannot be given favorable consideration.

Accept [etc.]

For the Acting Secretary of State:
Spruille Braden
