The Chargé in Liberia ( Wharton ) to the Secretary of State
[Received 3:50 p.m.]
100. From McBride for Villard. If agreement is not yet approved please phone John Martyn, assistant to Secretary of War and ask him to give the Secretary following personal message from me:
I would be grateful if War Department could approve agreement with Liberia which I have negotiated and inform Department of State. Delay is weakening our position here. Many thanks.
