The Secretary of State to the Chargé in Liberia (MacVeagh)

3. Your telegram No. 14, April 15, 10 a.m. The contract between the Liberian Government and the Finance Corporation is a private matter and we feel that any negotiations concerning changes therein can be made only at the desire of the parties concerned. We have repeatedly stated that we believe the League Plan which embodies certain changes in the Loan Contract is the best solution of Liberia’s [Page 793] difficulties and it would be inconsistent at the present time to interest ourselves on Liberia’s behalf in such negotiations.
