INTERNATIONAL AGREEMENTS OTHER THAN TREATIES [56 STAT. The Argentine Minister of Foreign Affairs and Worship to the American Ambassador MINISTRY OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS AND WORSHIP BUENOS AIRES, October 14, 1941 MR. AMBASSADOR: During the course of the negotiation of the Trade Agreement signed this day, the representatives of the Government of the United States have explained the situation with respect to the marketing of fresh pears in the United States resulting principally from the temporary curtailment of customary exports, and have proposed that the Argentine Government, during the 1942 marketing season, limit total exports of Argentine fresh pears to the United States with the object of obtaining, for the benefit of all concerned, their orderly marketing in the United States. Taking this situation into account, I have the honor to inform Your Excellency that the Argentine Government would be disposed to limit total exports of Argentine fresh pears to the United States during the 1942 marketing season. However, the Argentine Government is of the opinion that this is a matter which may appropriately be con- sidered by the Mixed Commission to be established pursuant to the Auc, p.1697. provisions of Paragraph 2 of Article No. XII of the general provisions of the Trade Agreement. Accept, Mr. Ambassador, the renewed assurance of my highest consideration. E. Ruiz GUInAZ6 The Honorable NORMAN ARMOUR Ambassador Extraordinaryand Plenipotentiary of the United States of America. 1758
