The Minister in Haiti ( Gordon ) to the Secretary of State
[Received November 20.]
Sir: With reference to the Department’s telegraphic instruction No. 29, of November 12, 1 have the honor to transmit herewith copies of the draft protocol and note, effecting the termination of American financial control in Haiti, which I delivered to the Haitian Minister for Foreign Affairs this morning.
I likewise left with him separate Aide-Mémoires covering the points mentioned in my telegram No. 55 of November 14, and the Department’s telegraphic instruction No. 32 of November 16, as well as two other points covered by the communications recently exchanged between the Department and this Legation. At the same time I set forth to him orally all the points covered by the separate Aide-Mémoires.
M. Léger said that now that he had these documents before him he thought that within a very short time, perhaps two or three days only, he could submit to me a plan for the transfer to the Bank of those services of the Fiscal Representative’s Office covered by the provisions of our draft note.
M. Léger also stated that he likewise hoped within a short time to be able to submit to me most of the remaining draft legislation which will have to be enacted by the Haitian Legislature.
