The Minister in the Dominican Republic ( Schoenfeld ) to the Secretary of State
[Received 11:55 a.m.]
76. Local representative of National City Bank has received negative response from his head office to the Dominican request reported in first paragraph of my telegram No. 72, October 14, 1 p.m. This was expected here in view of the answer received last night from Lee, Higginson to Dominican Government’s telegram of October 7. In that answer fiscal agents decline to act as requested by Dominican Government and say that the Department of State has been informed. Dunn tells me that request reported in my telegram 72 would not have been made if answer of fiscal agents had been previously received.
