The Secretary of State to the Chargé in Haiti ( Heath )

63. Your 109, September 19, 11 a.m. Inasmuch as this will merely be carrying out plans already made by the Commandant of the Garde early this year prior to treaty negotiations, Department sees no objection. At an appropriate time it should be clearly indicated to the Haitian Government that arrangements for Haitianization of the Department of the South are being carried out pursuant to earlier plans and entirely independently of the provisions of protocol (a) of the treaty of September 3, 1932, and that in the absence of ratification of that treaty the program for Haitianization of the Garde therein set forth obviously remains without effect.
