The Chargé in Cuba ( Wright ) to the Secretary of State
[Received July 10(?)]
Sir: I have the honor to refer to the Department’s secret telegram No. 383 of June 28, 1945,6 calling for a full summary of salient points, conclusions, and recommendations arrived at in the report received from General Brett7 regarding staff conversations held in Habana between officials of the American and Cuban armies, together with the Embassy’s comments.
In reply I have the honor to enclose herewith a memorandum prepared by an officer of the Embassy, in which the four points of interest [Page 899] to the Department are separately discussed. It may be remarked that the Cuban Government’s eventual request for the establishment of United States army (ground force and air force) missions to its army would, in ordinary procedure, most probably be directed to the Department of State through the Cuban Embassy at Washington, and that therefore the fact that this Embassy has as yet received no word regarding the preparation of such a request need not for the time being be regarded as an unpropitious circumstance.
