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

132. My despatch No. 295, September 23.63 The Minister for Foreign Affairs has just given me the following telegram from Abel Léger, Paris.

(Translation) “Following your last cable describing new situation, I have conferred today with National City Bank and Foreign Office. Accord reached on following basis: Banque de L’Union to facilitate settlement will receive bonds and present them for reimbursement at Paris branch. Payment by the latter upon presentation.”

The Minister for Foreign Affairs favors this arrangement as being in effect the method already existing.

I have discussed this with Pixley. We see no objections to the arrangement. I should appreciate a reply by cable.
