The Minister in Panama (Price) to the Secretary of State

Panama President writes me that “the arrival of the financial expert that we urgently need and which has been suggested or recommended by the State Department is anxiously awaited,” to [which I] have replied that I understood that his coming would follow the [passage] of such law by Panama as would enable him to render satisfactory service. While [waiting] upon such suggested law I suggest that steps be taken to locate such expert that he may come as promptly as possible following passage of law. Panama President to-day asks prompt response to the question of appointment of General Guardia as Secretary of the Treasury submitted by my cablegram of October 25th 4 p.m.5
