38. The Senate today gave its advice and consent to the ratification of the Isle of Pines treaty on a substitute resolution of Senator Borah providing that an exchange of notes at the time of the exchange of ratifications shall stipulate that the treaty proclaimed July 2, 1904, between the United States and Cuba shall apply to the Isle of Pines and that “other foreigners” in Article III of the treaty shall be understood to mean those foreigners who receive the most-favored-treatment from Cuba. Text of the resolution will be cabled to you tomorrow.
