|U.S. Consul writes that Cripps' friends, Mr. Marquardt (possibly J.B.M. from GLC03587.03 and .06) and Mr. Brunner, have arrived and finds them to be very enterprising. Mentions that Brunner may be deported but reassures him that he will see Brunner through. Has mentioned to Secretary of State Marcy that a military man should be sent to instill law and order south of the border. Discusses the need to reform "consular evils" and will see to it that Marcy is held responsible before the next Democratic National Convention. Calls fellow consul Pleasants "an ass" and says he should not have been appointed, but will try to accept him as they share the same consular district. Discusses Cripps' salary.
