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

71. Department’s telegram no. 84, April 16, 7 p.m. With a view to avoiding any undue anticipation or even misunderstanding as to the scope of the contemplated modifications and since they will not improbably form a part of a general scheme of financial relations between the two countries, I respectfully suggest that the (to Lescot presumably) good news be reserved for communication to him at the Department during the exchange of views envisaged in the Department’s telegram 83, April 16, midnight [5 p.m.]
