[A B. Blanchard]

Amlegation

Port au Prince.

Please say to the Government that this nation has no desire to assume responsibilities in regard to Haiti's fiscal system execpt in accordance with the wishes of the Government. In expressing a willingness to do in Haiti what we are doing in Santo Domingo, this Government was actuated wholly by a disinterested desire to render assistance. If for any reason the Government thinks it best not to consider this proposition further you will not press the matter. If the Government again intimates a desire to consider the subject you may proceed in accordance with the instructions already received. You may further say to the Government that the question of recognition will be considered on its merits and that recognition will be granted whenever this Government is satisfied that there is in Haiti a government capable of maintaining order and meeting the country's obligations to outside nations. Such a government is impossible however unless it rests upon the consent of the governed and gives expression to the will of the people. It will be necessary, therefore, for us to have information as to the fiscal standing and general plans of the Government and as to its attitude toward foreigners and the obligations which it owes to the citizens of other nations, including its attitude on the subjects relating to the Mole of St. Nicholas.
