The Clerk in Charge of the Legation at Monrovia ( Wall ) to the Secretary of State

5. For Harrison and Castle, from De la Rue. In conference with Secretary of State for Liberia February 21, 1925. Cabinet object to loan negotiation clause being included in agreements submitted by Firestone. Secretary believes that authorization for loan agreement assigning the same revenues but reducing number of control officers to those indicated in my letter of November 13, 1924,16 and modifications on other points necessary by reason of reduced amount might be entered into as a separate document and approved by the legislature at the same time. Please advise if there is any use in working on these lines. Believe other terms in agreements can be accepted.
