Briefing for Edward Tichborn, 1960: "The Agrupacion Montecristi is a small group composed of wealthy Cuban professionals and businessmen, predominantly lawyers and economists. Established about 1952 after Batista's coup d'etat, it is one of the oldest of the anti-Batista groups and was involved in the April 1956 abortive Army revolt led by Colonel Ramon Barquin." "On 20 July 1958, the Agrupacion Montecristi signed the Caracas Unity Pact (the unification agreement signed by representatives of all the groups in opposition to Batista) and formed a part of the Civic Revolutionary Front (Frente Civico Revolucionario, FCR). During the Batista regime, it served as a support mechanism for revolutionary activity inside Cuba. Its main functions as a support mechanism was to collect funds to finance the revolution and to provide economic and political guidance to the FRC."

10/17/60: Contact Report from Wallace A. Parlett: ..."2. The Cubans said that the AMBANG group is not ready to join AMRASP; the personal and political differences are too great. Most important, however, the AMBANG group's analysis of the mood and desires of the Cuban population shows that the country's future lies in the implementation of the goals of true revolutionists (AMBANG circle) and not with goals long outdated and offering no challenge or appeal to the Cubans. The AMBANG group is, of course, willing to cooperate with AMRASP and will not attack it. Since they are progressing nicely inside, AMBANG wants to establish a counterpart outside. Miro Cardona, Pepin Bosch, Quevedo, AMCHIRP-1 and AMWAIL-2 were mentioned as the most prominent members. They would like and very much need U.S./Parlett support..."
