The Secretary of State to the Chargé in Haiti (Dunn)

58. For General Russell:

Your 86, July 24, 2 p.m.

Department has carefully considered the whole situation and feels that it would be most inadvisable to modify its plan as outlined in Department’s No. 56 of July 18, 5 [4] p.m. The Department firmly believes that recapitalization of the internal debt should be proceeded with immediately as suggested in paragraph 5 of its instruction under consideration. You may present this matter to the Government as the views of the Department rather than of the Financial Adviser, should you deem it advisable.

You should present the financial plan to the Government as a whole as embodied in the Department’s telegram of July 18, 5 [4] p.m.
