837.51 Chase National Bank/752: Telegram

The Secretary of State to the Ambassador in Cuba ( Wright )

18. Your telegram no. 16 February 11, 5 p.m. Our position with respect to the Warren Brothers and Purdy and Henderson claims would appear to be sufficiently defined in the memorandum contained in the Department’s telegram no. 14, February 7, 2 p.m. so that no further statement would now appear necessary. As indicated by Duggan11 during your telephone conversation with him this morning, you should, however, continue to correct any misapprehensions which may appear to exist as to our views concerning the character of the obligations to be given in an early settlement of these two claims.

  1. Laurence Duggan, Chief of the Division of the American Republics.
