The Acting Secretary of State to the Minister in Haiti (Gordon)
Washington, November 16, 1936—5 p.m.
32. Your 55, November 14, 10 a.m. Department believes that the general purpose implied in your suggestion might be accomplished by communicating drafts to Léger under cover of a simple note of transmittal which you might leave in person with Léger. At the same time you could make the necessary oral communications on the three points [Page 621] brought up in your telegram under reference and leave three separate comprehensive aide-mémoires covering these points.
