The Secretary of State to the Ambassador in Ecuador ( Scotten )

695. Reference draft note to Galo Plaza which you carried to Quito. In view of further conversation with Ambassador Plaza in which he again admitted that there had been no “Twenty Million Dollar commitment,” Dept has decided not to send him a note on Galapagos Base question at this time. You should however, use substance of draft in conversations with FoMin should he raise the question.
