Pleasantly located in house in Vedado district; house all on one floor, fortunately for wife, who is having trouble with knee; new residence for Ambassador planned and should be completed within year; invites Mr. and Mrs. Wallace to visit; will have plenty to do in Cuba; Cuban politics bad and politicians worse; convinced 75 percent of Cuban people desire return to Constitutional government and wish to reestablish their credit and financial stability, but politicians have such grasp on machine, it will be difficult for will of people to assert itself; conscientious steps now being taken; important that nothing be done in U.S. which would react unfortunately on developments in Cuba; thinks it would be wise to maintain present sugar quotas and extend them through 1941.
