Abstract
Description
Received Welles' note regarding training planes for Cuba at cost of $60,000; Cubans had asked for surplus or obsolete planes and had not expected to pay for them; doubts wisdom of asking them to buy planes when they are already cutting budget at U.S. suggestion; recommends letting matter rest until Lend-Lease Bill is through Congress; perhaps under that bill delivery of planes may be permitted.
