The Acting Secretary of State to the Haitian Secretary of State for Foreign Relations (Laleau)

I have the honor to advise you that the President of the United States of America has named the Honorable Norman Armour as his special representative with the rank of Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary at the ceremonies at Port-au-Prince on August 21.

As special letters of credence cannot reach Minister Armour in time, I have the honor to request that Your Excellency will kindly arrange to have this notification of his designation accepted in order that he may be recognized as a special representative of the President at the ceremonies.

William Phillips
