  The Secretary of State to the Minister in Colombia (Whitehouse)
No. 106                          WASHINGTON, December 10, 1934.
  SIR: There is transmitted herewith for your information a copy
of an aide-mexrnoire and enclosures which was today transmitted to the
Charge d'Affaires ad interim of Colombia,14b in regard to the proposed
trade agreement between the United States and Colombia.
  Although it is expected that the agreement will be negotiated and
signed in Washington, you are nevertheless requested to familiarize
yourself with the proposals contained in the aide-memoire and enclo-
sures and to take an early occasion to ascertain the reaction of the
Colombian Government with respect to them. This Government is
anxious to proceed rapidly with the negotiations in order that, if pos-
sible, the agreement may be submitted to the Colombian Congress
before the adjournment of the special session.
  Very truly yours,                     For the Secretary of State:
                                                FRANcIs B. SAYRE

  109. Department's instruction No. 106, December 10th. The con-
troversy over Rio de Janeiro Pact 15 and the disagreements between the
Executive and Congress regarding monetary problems for the next
fiscal year make it improbable that action will be taken on the com-
mercial treaty before the termination of the present extraordinary
session of Congress on December 31st. Nevertheless it is possible that
Congress will be called in session during January.
