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

[Paraphrase]

51. Your telegram No. 76, July 26, 9 a.m. Department is not disposed to offer any objection to proposed convention between France and Haiti.

Department hopes, however, that terms of the convention will not preclude its generalization to other nations besides the United States with which Government of Haiti may conclude most-favored-nation agreements, as such preclusion would be contrary to the policy of the universal most-favored-nation treatment which the Government of the United States strongly favors.
