The Minister in Haiti ( Blanchard) to the Secretary of State


Haitian Minister for Foreign Affairs in acknowledging the receipt of Legation’s note bearing on subject Department’s circular September 20, 6 p.m., in the name of the Haitian Government [stated]:

That it can but feel the same profound sentiment of horror and repulsion felt by the Government of the United States in presence of the appalling crimes which have just been revealed, at the same time an ardent sympathy for so many innocent victims and for the great Russian nation so cruelly stricken. The Haitian Government declares itself disposed to an immediate action in order that the perpetrators of these atrocities and of these calamities be impressed with the sentiment of absolute reprobation which they inspire to any civilized people.
