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


853. Sub-Secretary1 informed me today Supreme Decree now in preparation which he read will authorize conclusion renegotiation Lend-Lease Agreement and enable payment first installment next week without Congressional action. However, he stated that under Bolivian law decree must recite values involved and therefore will mention publicly amount Bolivia received and amount of $916,000 now due thereunder.

Since mention these amounts inevitable I told him no objection perceived.
