DescriptionHas considered Bonsal's suggestion that despatch No. 1505 be withheld from Department's files and that another despatch be substituted covering whole recent Cuban incident; believes the series of despatches beginning with Feb. 1 tells the story accurately as it occurred; seeming inconsistencies such as Army's switch in support from [Jose] Pedraza to Batista were part of the drama, and picture not complete without them; would prefer to let record stand as it is; reason for marking No. 1505 for limited circulation was the mention of [Domingo] Ramos as source of information; might be unfavorable developments for Ramos if it were known in Cuba; position of Ramos stronger as result of events; he is now instrument through which President handles all matters relating to armed forces; received telegram from Pedraza after his arrival in Miami expressing appreciation for help given him and family in getting away; this was done with knowledge and approval of Cuban Government; everyone in Cuba, except Communists, seems satisfied with turn of events.en_US
