The Chargé in Cuba (Curtis) to the Secretary of State

No. 716

Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of the Department’s telegram No. 60 of June 12, 5 PM., 1929,32 asking when the reply of the Cuban Department of State may be expected with regard to the acceptability of the stipulations contained in the Department’s draft of agreement for the arbitration of the claim of Mr. Charles J. Harrah.

I regret to have to inform you that I have been unable to obtain any definite date. The Embassy has kept this matter constantly before the attention of the Cuban Department of State and received yesterday from the sub-Secretary of State an assurance that he would immediately give the matter his personal attention and send me a formal statement at the earliest possible moment. I shall continue to press this matter upon him at very short intervals.

I have [etc.]

C. B. Curtis
