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

21. Your 46, April 12, 1 p.m. You are authorized to omit the last phrase of the note enclosed with the Department’s instruction No. 171 of March 22. Please say to the Minister of Foreign Affairs, however, that it is the Department’s view that present market conditions and the provisions of the loan contracts would make a refunding operation difficult at the present time.

As the press has shown an interest in our reply to the Haitian Government, the Department intends to release for publication here on Friday next the text of the note enclosed with our instruction No. 171, with the omission mentioned above. Please telegraph whether you made the changes in the text of this note authorized in Department’s No. 18, April 4, 6 p.m.14
