The Chargé in Liberia (Hibbard) to the Secretary of State

Department’s telegram 312, December 4, 10 p.m. I have had a conversation with President Barclay this morning for the first time in 3 weeks as he has been confined to his bed. We discussed all pending matters which will be taken up in individual telegrams.

The Liberian Government is still desirous of receiving lend-lease aid and accordingly requests that the President’s certification of Liberia’s eligibility be made public53 in the usual way and that the Department proceed with the preparation of a lend-lease agreement between the two countries.
