File No. 839.00/326C.

The Acting Secretary of State to the American Minister.


Instructs the legation to inform the Dominican Government that the Department has reasons to believe that ex-President Morales and about 70 other Dominican exiles are about to institute a revolutionary movement against the Dominican Republic, and to ask that Government to take appropriate measures. The Dominican Government should be informed by the legation that in view of the interests of the creditors of the Dominican Republic, no interference with the present system of customs administration nor any attempt to set aside or change the present plan of adjustment can be sanctioned or permitted by the Government of the United States. The Dominican Government is expected to take all necessary steps for the prevention of any interference or changes of this nature.
