Paris, April 17, 1904
(Mr. Porter sends the following from Messrs. Day and Russell to the Attorney-General:
General deed conveying totality of property has been executed and delivered before our consul-general. Deed drawn to suit us, and we are guaranteed all further deeds we may want later. We are to pay transfer charges, if any. Have no expectations of having to pay any. We shall take possession here and shall cable Walker at Panama to take over properties there, sending copy of deed and other papers.)
