02/03/65: Dispatch from COS, Mexico City to Chief, WH Division: Subject: LIEMPTY/LIMOUSINE: ..."3. Consideration had been given in the Station to installing (unintelligible) switchable transmitters in the two lower apartments in view of their probable attractiveness to FJSTEAL personnel. However, it is Station's view that given LIMOUSINE's close involvement with KUBARK (CIA) on a number of matters it would be well neither to have too much FJSTEAL interest aroused in the building nor to give them the opportunity to observe the pattern of LIFEUD/6 at such close range. 4. With reference to paragraph 5 of the memorandum, Station will probably decide to have LIFEUD/6 drew up a normal contract with LIMOUSINE and pay him his rent, which will passed by LIMOUSINE to Station at regular intervals. The question of how to route an (unintelligible) normal transaction around LIMOUSINE's bookkeeper has not yet been resolved."
