The Chargé in Haiti (Sparks) to the Secretary of State

238. During my call on the President this evening he gave categorical instructions to the Chief of Police to take immediately additional steps to guard against possible attempts at sabotage and to apprehend any person showing any suspicious movement. While there are no Japanese in this country he gave these orders in recognition of the collaboration of Japan and Germany as Axis partners and the possibility of attempt at sabotage by Germans.
