The Secretary of State to the Minister in Panama (Price)
WASHINGTON, November 19, 1918, 4 p.m.
Strictly confidential.
Your November 11, 4 p.m.8 Department regrets that Jenks" is
unavailable for work in Panama and suggests Ruan 'O as Fiscal
Agent in that country. Ruan is at present Financial Adviser to the
Haitian Government. He is one of the most experienced men along
these lines who has been in the employ of this Government. He has
laid the foundation for economic development in Haiti and could be
spared for the same constructive work in Panama. Department
believes that Ruan is more suitable than any other person it can sug-
gest and feels that Panaman Government should accept. Ruan will
be asked if this will be agreeable to him upon receipt of reply.
