File No. 838.111/148.
The Secretary of State to the American Minister.
Washington, November 19, 1913.
Representations have been made to the Department that it is impossible for Daniel John to close up his affairs and leave Haiti before November 30 without being ruined. Use your personal good offices to secure an extension of time for John. If circumstances justify formal representations, either because John has not been granted sufficient time to wind up his affairs or that this is a case of discrimination, impress upon the Foreign Office that expulsion might lead to international claim.
