The Minister in Haiti (Munro) to the Acting Secretary of State

82. Reference the Department’s telegram No. 54, July 20, 5 p.m. I presented the note this morning and discussed the question fully with the Minister for Foreign Affairs. He said that the only way in which the Haitian Government could comply with our request for the recall of the budget would be by concluding the Haitianization agreement at once and using this as a pretext for recalling it. I said that I would be willing to accept such a solution provided that a satisfactory Haitianization agreement were signed promptly.
