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

69. I have complied with Department’s 49, November 23, 2 p.m. Barclay reticent to comment on nomination but expresses salary high. Will report to the Department by cable any reaction. Barclay asks may Legation’s note be construed as offer of Fiscal Agents toward making any [new?] agreement on salary between the Fiscal Agents and Liberia under article 12, paragraph 3, loan agreement.

Legation’s understanding salary and allowances fall within article 13, paragraph 1.
