The Acting Secretary of State to the Minister in the Dominican Republic (Curtis)

38. The Red Cross is ordering Captain Antonio Silva, Manager of its Porto Rico chapter, to report to you immediately and confer regarding relief measures. He will probably be accompanied by several assistants.

The Red Cross has also made available $15,000 for emergency relief to be expended by you at your discretion. You may draw separate draft upon the Department for this amount and render separate account.
