The Secretary of State to the Chargé in the Dominican Republic ( Stafford )

32. Your No. 59 September 15th, 9 P.M. Dunn discussed situation fully with Department and with legal counsel in New York. Senate amendment you mention will probably be superseded by plan which Dunn is taking back to Santo Domingo sailing today. Default of some sort is probably inevitable. Department endeavoring to limit default and protect bondholders. Procedure still under discussion. Schoenfeld will arrive Santo Domingo October 1st with full instructions and knowledge of Department’s views.
