President Dartiguenave to President Wilson


The President of Haiti has the honor to inform Your Excellency of the following serious matter: According to an official letter from the Financial Adviser to the Secretary of State for Finance, the salaries due for July to the President of the Republic, the Secretaries of State, and Councilors of State have been withheld by order of Mr. Bailly-Blanchard, United States Minister. On behalf of the nation, I protest to Your Excellency against this measure of violence, which is an assault against the dignity of the Haitian Government and people.
