68. Your 74, April 22,13 and 82, April 26. Please confirm our belief that, as a solution of the problem, the Government of Costa Rica is prepared to deport these seamen as undesirables by transporting them under necessary guard to Port Limon and placing them aboard the S. S. Stella Maris, to sail as early as possible, Friday morning, May 16, thus discharging that Government’s responsibility in the premises. Upon arrival in the Canal Zone, these seamen will be subject to the jurisdiction of the American authorities. Please cable reply immediately.
