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

103. Dr. Smith is today cabling the Surgeon General that, in view of consistent failure of the Government to cooperate in any way, he feels further time spent here is wasted. The Government has failed to acknowledge any recommendations and has failed to make the balance of appropriations available, although the Acting Financial Adviser has presented a plan showing funds could be obtained for the purpose. (See Legation’s telegram No. 101, August 8, 11 a.m.96)

I am in complete accord with Dr. Smith in this respect and feel that this is the only possible way in which the Government might be compelled to comply with the terms of the memorandum agreement.
