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

67. My 66, December 21, 4 p.m. This morning I submitted documents to the Minister for Foreign Affairs outlining their contents and amplifying orally certain of the Department’s fundamental objections to the proposed Haitian legislation as authorized in the Department’s instruction 438 of December 16. I left an additional aide-mémoire with him covering this oral exposition. The Minister for Foreign Affairs said that after examination of the documents he would like to discuss them with me further next Monday.

Amplifying despatch by airmail tomorrow.
