The Ambassador in Brazil (Morgan) to the Acting Secretary of State

In spite of representations to [omission] and the good will of Brazilian Foreign Office the Western Telegraph line’s opposition to the registration of the Central and South American Telegraph Company’s Cuban concession continues. If this opposition were removed the matter would probably go forward satisfactorily.

Cannot steps be taken in London to remove the unjustified impediments which this British Company is placing in the way of a legitimate and necessary American enterprise? My patience and resources here are about exhausted.
