104-10512-10101: REPORTS TO BE SENT FROM HAVANA.

08/26/1962, Cable from RIOD to Director and JMWAVE: Slugline GYROSE AMLACE: "1. AMTOAD-1 says he persuaded AMLACE-1's wife (hereafter AMLACE-2) to send him reports from Havana. Believes she would be willing act as courier for anti-Castro refugees. Reports to be sent via (REDACTION) to Maria C. Niemeyer (no record Station files) of (REDACTION) Miami. Renard and Harry V. Witherby, new GYROSE Case Officer vice Andriette, displayed no particular interest. AMTOAD-1 of course unaware our tie to AMLACE-1. AMTOAD will probably report AMLACE-2 op to AMBUD HQs and may seek trip to Miami to exploit. 2. This may be minor informal agreement on which AMLACE-2 does not intend to act, altho AMSTRUT-1 has stated AMLACE-2 strongly anti-Castro and willing work. 3. We feel this development no threat to AMLACE-1 security. Will take no corrective action unless addees instruct otherwise."
