838.00 Commission of Investigation/132, 140: Telegram

The Chairman of the President’s Commission ( Forbes ) to the Acting Secretary of State

[Paraphrase]

9. The Commission is gratified with approval received this morning.11 It believes it can get the entire matter settled without further delay because no debated point now remains at issue. It hopes to get all necessary documents signed today.

All data necessary for survey and report have been assembled, and, unless the Commission receives orders to the contrary, it sees no good reason why it should not leave Port-au-Prince tomorrow and proceed to Guantanamo to coal U. S. S. Rochester, and arrive at Miami about daylight March 20. The Commission will then proceed direct to Washington.
