The Secretary of State to the Minister in Panama ( Price )


In view of fact that Government of Cuba has decided to send a commission to the United States to confer with this Government concerning best methods for its cooperation in the present conflict [Page 260] with Germany, it is felt that a very favorable impression would be created here by some similar step on the part of Panama. You may therefore suggest in a discreet manner to Government of Panama that full powers might be sent to Minister Porras to act as commissioner or chief of a commission to cooperate with this country.
