File No. 838.77/157
The Minister of Haiti to the Division of Latin American Affairs
Washington, January 23, 1917.
Dear Mr. Stabler: I take great pleasure in delivering herewith to you two copies of a supplemental note on the controversy pending between the Haitian Government and the National Railroad Company of Haiti. One is intended for the Department of State and I beg you to forward the other to the company’s representative in New York.
As I told you yesterday I received instructions, dated December 28, 1916, from my Government last week which enable me to carry on negotiations with the company without again referring to Port au Prince.
Be pleased [etc.]
