The Minister in Liberia (Walton) to the Secretary of State
[Received November 29—3:49 p.m.]
197. President Barclay has informed me that the requisite arrangements for experts as requested in Department’s telegram No. 128, November 27, 7 p.m., will be authorized.
Regarding question of food, he observed that considering the difference in living standards between Liberia and the United States his Government would think it more appropriate that a subsistence allowance be made to experts in lieu of food furnished directly by the Liberian Government; and that if this is agreed to by our Government and experts, he would appreciate advice as to what might be considered an adequate allowance.
