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

4. The American Government is greatly distressed at reports which have reached it that Liberia intends to persist in her attitude of placing unacceptable reservations to her acceptance of the League Plan of Assistance. In the next day or two, the precise time to be determined by you, please see Simpson and express to him our anxiety in this matter and reiterate our earnest hope that Liberia will reconsider at once and accept the Plan without reservation.
