The Minister in Colombia (Caffery) to the Secretary of State

No. 2381

Sir: Referring to my despatch No. 2376 of March 24 (File No. 801.A Rublee), in which I spoke of the excellent work which had [Page 17] been done here by Mr. Rublee, I have the honor to report that President Olaya took the occasion yesterday to ask me to express to the Department of State his appreciation of what Mr. Rublee had done. He said that Mr. Rublee had been “more than satisfactory;” the Government was delighted with what he had done, both in connection with the oil law and in connection with the signing of the Barco contract.

Respectfully yours,

Jefferson Caffery
