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

3. Reference your No. 5, January 25, 4 p.m. You are again assured that no committal of any character at variance with information and instructions furnished you has been made to Davies or Newman or to any other person by this Department or any of its officials and you have full authority to state this very emphatically whenever in your opinion occasion requires.

Mr. Newman may have gained the impression that the remittance of $100,000 made last September was sufficient to comply with my suggestion to him as set forth in my strictly confidential telegram No. 25 of September 15th, 1933.11 However, in view of the Dominican Government’s determination to get in touch with the Bondholders Council as soon as possible and the representations already made by you, I do not desire you to make any further statement to the Dominican authorities with respect to the surplus in the Emergency fund unless or until otherwise instructed.
