File No. 839.51/1751



My telegram of June 5. Absolutely urgent to have answer in regard to financial control and collection internal revenue. In my note to Council of Ministers I stated that we would immediately establish control of all the financial arrangements of the Dominican [Page 251] Republic through the Receivership; but Receiver must have instructions. In view of insufficiency of force in Receivership, it can detail Edwards, former deputy Receiver General, to this work until a definite arrangement is made. Edwards is an excellent man and his services should be availed of in this emergency.
