The Minister in Cuba ( Long ) to the Secretary of State


326. Department’s telegram no. 232. The representative of the All America Cables Company, Mr. Strahan, has arrived in Habana. In regard to the permit granted the Western Union Company to land its Barbados cable in Cuba, it is Mr. Strahan’s impression that this Legation was to be instructed to ask that this permission be suspended by the Cuban Government until its international aspect should have been considered, as preliminary, possibly, to a request for the revocation of the permit. I respectfully suggest that instructions be sent me.

According to advices just received the cable ship, Robert R. Clowery, has sailed for Key West from Habana.
