The Ambassador in Spain (Bowers) to the Secretary of State

71. Your telegram No. 52, November 10, 5 p.m. Action of the Auditor was expected since he is the man who refused bail and acts now on spite. I am in close touch with the authorities here who are seeking to speed Supreme Court decision. Government anxious as we to close incident. I am confident that Court will sustain verdict of acquittal. Will telegraph if and when pressure from the Department seems necessary or desirable.
