The Minister in Haiti (Armour) to the Secretary of State

79. Department’s telegram No. 64, July 17, 8 p.m. I feel very strongly that it would be advisable to have the conversations conducted in Washington. I also consider that De la Hue’s presence there to assist the Haitian Minister would be advisable. May I suggest to the Haitian Government that his departure about August 2 after the return of Pixley32 would in the opinion of our Government facilitate negotiations in connection with a commercial treaty. I have every reason to believe that the suggestion will be well received.

  1. Rex A. Pixley, Deputy Fiscal Representative of the Republic of Haiti.
