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

61. Léger told Pixley today that in his opinion it would now be impossible to negotiate a loan before the bank plan has been put into operation and that he thought that the President had asked de la Rue to return to Haiti. Even if this should prove true I trust the latter will not return until he has worked out a plan for transferring the machinery of his present office to the bank to the complete satisfaction of the Department.
