694. Memorandum of telephone conversation between Ed Martin and Ball, June 251

[Facsimile Page 1]

BALL—What are we going to do about an answer to the Cuban note?

MARTIN—Well, nothing very early. We don’t usually do much about answering them. Bob is here going over a telegram to the Secretary on the interpretations of it. We certainly wouldn’t do it rapidly, but I suppose at some point we might say something back to them. There is no hurry about it. Maybe when they get back. There is no pattern of rapid exchanges on this. One thing for action that they raised was the two guys return and we have already altered that.
