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

9. Foreign Minister states he has a cable from Blanchet45 saying that you had instructed our Paris Embassy to make representations to the effect that there is no ground for connecting the question of the commercial treaty with the 1910 claim in which we are “associated” with Haiti.

The Foreign Minister repeated his promise that he would send no instructions to Mayard without letting me know and assured me categorically that he had no intention of making any proposition for settlement.

  1. Albert Blanchet, Haitian Minister in the United States.
