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

No. 194

Sir: The Department has read with interest your despatch No. 397 of May 7, 1932, on the subject of the arrest of the Collector of Customs at Glore, and has noted the letter which you addressed on May 3 to the Commandant of the Garde requesting him to instruct Garde officials in places where there are Customs Collectors not to execute orders of arrest against such Collectors without prior consultation with Garde headquarters at Port au Prince. The Department approves the action which you have taken.

Very truly yours,

For the Secretary of State:
Francis White
