File No. 812.77/124.

The American Ambassador to the Secretary of State.


It is impossible to do anything in the railway situation. The situation has been further aggravated by the railway management’s refusal to give the men service letters or transportation to the border. I have asked Mr. Calero to express to the President this Embassy’s deep concern. I will be glad to be instructed to take active steps to secure just treatment for the men. Shall I sign a general certificate attesting the service of these men and their reason for leaving the National Railways service?
