The Secretary of State to the Minister in the Dominican Republic ( Schoenfeld )

Dear Mr. Schoenfeld: I take pleasure in introducing to you, by this letter, Mr. Joseph E. Davies, who is leaving Washington today for [Page 632] Santo Domingo. Mr. Davies has been asked by President Trujillo to come to the Dominican Republic and look into the financial situation with a possibility that Mr. Davies will be appointed attorney for the Dominican Government in connection with such matters.

Any assistance and courtesies which you can properly extend to Mr. Davies, whom I have known for many years, will be much appreciated.

Yours sincerely,

Cordell Hull
