The Chargé in Venezuela (Engert) to the Secretary of State

112. Department’s telegram No. 16, May 17, 5 p.m., and Legation’s despatch No. 1860, May 19th.

Although I have repeatedly assisted the company informally, I feel they have reached an impasse and have advised them to confer with the Department as to what further action, if any, the Legation could properly take.
