The Chargé in Liberia (Carter) to the Secretary of State

19. My telegram No. 17, January 30, 1 p.m. Barclay17 informed me this morning that the Liberian Government had requested the League to name successor to Meek but indicated that he doubted if the Commission would have time to accomplish much unless it meets by March 10th. This last I am inclined to regard as intended to lay the grounds for a reopening of discussion re terms of reference and a consequent indefinite delay in the investigation.

  1. Edwin Barclay, Liberian Secretary of State.
