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

118. Reference my telegram No. 115, November 1, noon. To complete paragraph 1, I wish to advise that the procedure for fixing exchange rates at the customs houses is prescribed by article 38 of the Customs Law of July 26, 1926,47 and changes in procedure would therefore require new legislation.

In spite of the above I would appreciate the Department’s opinion on the matter presented, as Pixley feels that the Government here may desire to introduce [apparent omission] to permit adoption of the plan.
