116. At request of Cuban Government we are giving consideration to possibility of evacuation of 200 Cubans from Valencia to Marseille by American naval vessel. We understand from Cuban Embassy in Madrid that arrangements have been made with French Government for admission these Cuban refugees into France, but before taking action we wish confirmation by telegraph that French authorities would be agreeable to entry of these Cubans.
