File No. 839.51/1514.
Minister Sullivan to the Secretary of State.
Santo Domingo, March 12, 1915—9 a.m.
Collett recommends that credit order 1334 covering road to La Vega from Santo Domingo submitted last year be now approved to the extent of two hundred thousand dollars so that this work, first part of which is well under way, can be rushed. We both consider this road the most important work on the island. Bordas Government, and Minister of Fomento Velasquez now claim this credit order is legal and requested Coilett to recommend its approval. I concur in this recommendation.
