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

82. Your 126, September 22, 9 a.m. Department has received a note from the British Embassy, dated September 23, stating that the difficulties encountered by Dr. Smith in carrying out his task have been brought to the attention of His Majesty’s Government. [Here follows the substance of the note from the British Ambassador printed on page 431.]

The Department perceives no objection to your making representations similar to those outlined in the British note unless such action should interfere with the plans which you have worked out with Hines and Loomis. Please inform Department.
