Mr. Hay to Mr. Lord.b


You are instructed, at the request of the President of Cuba, to ask the Government of Argentina to permit United States consular officers within its jurisdiction to use their good offices in representation of the interests of Cuba and of its citizens until Cuban consuls shall have been appointed.

If permission is granted, notify consuls.

John Hay.
