. ; STAT.] EL SALVADOR-EXPERIMENT STATION No. 24 ,1942 1809 i)ec. 2. 1942 1809 Honorable Claude R. Wickard, Secretary of Agriculture of the United States of America, on the date mentioned. The Spanish and English texts of the Memorandum of Understanding signed are given below: [Here follows the bilingual text of the Memorandum]. It gives me pleasure to comply with instructions which I have received from my Government to declare to Your Excellency that the Memorandum of Understanding which is transcribed in the present note is approved in all its parts by the Government of El Salvador. In view of the fact that Your Excellency's note, mentioned at the beginning of this note, contains the declaration that the Government of the United States of America also approves in all its parts the Memorandum of Understanding under reference, I consider that Your Excellency's note and the present reply complete the necessary ap- proval of that Memorandum, constituting an agreement between our two Governments on the subject, it being understood that this agree- ment has been in effect since October 21, 1942, and is to continue in force for a period of ten years, unless the Congress of either of the two countries fails to appropriate the funds necessary for its execution, in which case the agreement may be terminated by means of sixty days' notice given by one of the two Governments to the other. I offer Your Excellency the assurances of my highest consideration. HECTOR DAVID CASTRO His Excellency CORDELL HULL, Secretary of State, Washington, D. C .
