Received telegram asking for comment on note handed to Mexican Ambassador in Washington regarding arbitration on seizure of oil properties; has asked [Willard Leon] Beaulac to draft dispatch (No. 170); has seen little comment in Cuban press; gave copies of note, in Spanish, to leaders in Cuban Government, but has had no reaction from them yet; note was excellent and will serve useful purpose; should have good effect in Cuba; Constitutional Assembly was to have met yesterday to give to remainder of Congress power to legislate, but did not have quorum; opposition seems to have gone back on bargain; has been assured by President [Federico Laredo Bru] and [Miguel Angel] Campa there would be nothing in New Constitution which could destroy confidence; knows Duggan's concern over problems; doing everything possible here.
Messersmith, George S. (George Strausser), 1883-1960.
