File No. 838.51/463

Admiral Caperton to the Secretary of the Navy


In preparing a system for paying employees and creditors of Haiti, it is important to know whether there is to be a continuation of the system under the treaty after the necessary officials have been appointed. In order to insure efficiency the plan laid now should be comprehensive in character, but such plan must be less comprehensive if system is to be later discontinued, with efficiency partially sacrificed. Recommendation is made that, if practicable, the treaty arrangement include this method of disbursement. 15107.
