The Acting Secretary of State to President King of Liberia

I have the honor to acknowledge your Excellency’s telegram of August 30 regarding the statements made by Professor Buell at Williamstown concerning the Firestone concession and the American loan to Liberia. The text of your telegram was communicated to the Press which has given it full publicity and it should effectively dispose of any erroneous or misguided impressions which may have been created in this country or elsewhere by Professor Buell’s statements.

J. Reuben Clark, Jr.
