   The Minister in Finland (Pearson) to the Secretary of State
                            [Extracts]
No. 376                            HELSINGFORS, February 3, 1927.
                                              [Received March 2.]
  Sm: Pursuant to telegraphic instruction No. 2, January 29, 5 p. m.,
I visited the Foreign Office yesterday and talked informally with
the Assistant Foreign Minister in order to learn the wishes of the
Finnish Government in regard to the draft of a Treaty of Friend-
ship, Commerce and Consular Rights, proposed by Washington in
August 1923.
  I thought it advisable to talk with the Assistant Foreign Minister
rather than with Mr. Voionmaa himself, who has been in office as
Foreign Minister only a few weeks and who would not be familiar
with the past history of the case; and for the additional reason
that Mr. Artti, the Assistant Foreign Minister, has much to do with
directing negotiations relative to foreign treaties. I will, however,
seek an early occasion to talk with the Foreign Minister also in order
to secure his co-operation and good will in the matter.
' Not printed; it transmitted a draft treaty of friendship and commerce
which had been submitted to the Finnish Government through its Legation in
Washington. The draft was similar to that transmitted to the Ambassador
in Spain, May 18, 1923, Foreign Relations, 1923, vol. II, p. 831.
