The Secretary of State to Minister Russell.


Department trusts situation foreshadowed in your November 20, 5 p.m. will not materialize. The resignation of President Jiménes would be a matter of regret and concern. The Department will be glad if you will so inform him and assure him of our support in any efforts that he may undertake with a view to secure peace and prosperity in Santo Domingo.
