The Secretary of State to the Cuban Ambassador ( Concheso )

Excellency: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your note 575 dated May 26, 1941, requesting in the name of your Government that the blanket arrangement between the United States and Cuba, under the terms of which service aircraft, including lighter-than air craft, of either country are permitted, under certain conditions, to fly over and, if necessary, to land in the territory of the other, be renewed for the year ending June 30, 1942.

I have the honor to inform you, in response, that the Government of the United States gladly accedes to your Excellency’s request. It is accordingly suggested, if agreeable to the Government of Cuba, that your Excellency’s note under acknowledgment, together with this reply, be considered as effecting a renewal of the arrangement in question for the year ending June 30, 1942.

Accept [etc.]

For the Secretary of State:
A. A. Berle, Jr.
