882.01 Foreign Control/925: Telegram

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


54. President Barclay received me very cordially this morning. He read the message contained in the Department’s telegram of November [Page 830] 19, 6 p.m., and told me that while he would have to consider it more carefully from his hurried reading he was in complete agreement with all points except that covering the depositary. He felt, however, that a compromise on this satisfactory to both parties could be reached and said that he would communicate with me shortly regarding the whole message. He assured me of his desire to cooperate fully with the Department and of his hope to gain the confidence and sympathy of the United States Government.
