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

67. In case of his election as President “which now seems a certainty” Lescot would like to go to Washington as soon after April 15 as practicable to return May 15. He would like to discuss with Department further economic aid to Haiti and Inter-American defense problems. He indicated that he would like a suggestion to this effect to come from Washington giving as a pretext consideration to President Vincent.

Please instruct.
