File No. 839.51/1580.

President Jiménes to President Wilson.


Holding our respective Governments to be animated by the same interest in maintaining close and respectful relations among American and Dominican officials and deeming it antagonistic to that purpose that Charles Johnston should hold any office in this country, I make bold so to inform Your Excellency in order that you give the requisite directions should you deem it expedient to prevent the said gentleman from assuming any office in Santo Domingo.

Cordially and sincerely,

President Jiménes.
