The High Commissioner in Haiti (Russell) to the Secretary of State


26. Your 20, April 11, 5 p.m. I have been assured by President Borno that he will not be a candidate or allow his name to be considered at the election for President in April 1930. In giving me this assurance President Borno requested that it be maintained strictly confidential and I have assured him that it would be carefully guarded until given out by him. President Borno does not expect to make it public until two or three months before the election.
