Believe linguistic capability and experience buen (sic) and bang qualify him exceptionally will (sic) for LICAPER supervisor or LIENVOY if it continues. Appears capable adapting Mexican peculiarities and not averse being cut off from official colony. Main question one of timing. Know he eager return here and get settled...can guarantee keeping him busy doing PBBAND translations for LITENSOR and LIENVOY (Cuban) tapes which would (be removed) from LIENVOY for this purpose. We are told SAS wants these verbatim which LIENVOY present staff cannot handle. Station requests therefore return Horsfall here soon as feasible...(when new Presidential candidate named in early October) Horsfall's status would change from tourist and household effects could be brought in..."
