The Secretary of State to the Chargé in Cuba (Reed)

No. 658

Sir: The Department has received and read with interest your despatch No. 1391, dated October 7, 1932, reporting the present delicate situation in which you have been placed by the numerous requests received by you for protection from Cubans who believe themselves to be in jeopardy.

The Department approves the course you have followed in refusing to grant requests by Cubans for shelter in your home or in the chancery.

Very truly yours,

For the Secretary of State:
Francis White
