File No. 839.00/1720.

Chargé Johnson to the Secretary of State.


In compliance with your instructions dated July 16, 4 p.m. I have * * * made both verbal and written protest against diversion of funds. * * * Impossible to determine yet the ability of the Government to cope with situation. * * * No doubt, however, of magnitude and wastefulness of suppressive effort already made and of considerable disorganization of Government finances Which will result even if disorders abate.
