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

The Haitian Government having caused to be passed number of laws without the approval of the Legation, in violation of the agreement of August 24, 1918,33 I have notified the Haitian Government that these laws will not be recognized as law by the Government of the United States and have instructed the treaty officials concerned to act accordingly. These laws are on pensions, trade-marks, mining concessions, railroads, primary education, preparatory manual training, and dwellings, automobiles, typewriters etc.
