The Ambassador in Cuba ( Crowder ) to the Secretary of State

No. 1227

Sir: I have the honor to refer to my telegrams Nos. 120 of September 30, 2 P.M., and 122 of October 13, 10 A.M., and to the Department’s telegram No. 113 of October 16, 1 P.M.,34 with reference to the desire of the Cuban Government to receive at an early date the reply of the American Government to the Cuban counter-draft of the proposed Consular Convention.

I now have the honor to transmit herewith a translation of a note, No. 1103, dated October 30, 1925, from Dr. Céspedes33 in which he makes formal inquiry concerning the status of this matter and points out that it has been pending without reply for more than two months.

I am sure the Department will appreciate that under these circumstances it is somewhat embarrassing for me to attempt to urge expedition upon the Cuban Government in its consideration of the Smuggling and Extradition Treaties, and I trust the Department will assist me in my negotiations by giving the Consular Convention as prompt consideration as possible.

I have [etc.]

E. H. Crowder
