The Minister in the Dominican Republic (Curtis) to the Secretary of State
[Received 1:35 p.m.]
104. My 103 September 9, 11 a.m.18 Dominican Army and police are almost completely demoralized and the moral effect of having 50 marines here would be enormously beneficial. Major W. B. Sullivan who has acted as Navy Department liaison officer states that Trujillo requests me through him to have such detachment sent here. Major Sullivan particularly recommends sending also Captain Thomas E. Watson, United States Marine Corps.
