The Minister in Haiti (Armour) to the Secretary of State
[Received August 14.]
Sir: I have the honor to refer to the Department’s Instruction No. 186 of July 12, 1934, and to my telegram No. 78 of July 17, 4 P.M., relating to the transfer to the Haitian Government of certain leases, buildings, equipment, supplies and material, the property of the United States located in Haiti.
The transfer of the leases and easement mentioned in the Navy Department’s enclosure to the instruction mentioned above has been effected through an exchange of notes, as suggested in the Department’s instruction, by which the Haitian Government assumes all obligations under the said leases and easement.
I enclose copies of my note to the Secretary of Foreign Relations22 setting forth the leases and easement in question and requesting a confirmation of the assumption by the Haitian Government of the obligations relating thereto, and copies of the reply of the Foreign Office22 officially confirming the acceptance of all obligations of the United States Government under the leases and easement, and any or all claims that may arise therefrom.
