The High Commissioner in Haiti (Russell) to the Secretary of State

42. Department’s March 21, 6 [5] p.m. President Borno informs me he will telegraph to Monsieur Dejean today to accept French proposal without reservation. He further stated that recourse to revision through diplomatic channels would extend to other foreign governments having claims. His interpretation is that if in proceedings of Claims Commission foreign delegate files minority report disagreeing with other two delegates then the foreign government [if it] so desires to [may] take up claim through diplomatic channels.
