The document states: "On the 18th of September the undersigned, as Mr. Dimitry, met with Evilio Duque Miyar, the ex-guerrilla leader in the Escambrays and his two companions, Mr. Bosch and Mr. Lage; the former is a medical doctor, the second is a doctor of law. These three gentlemen met with Mr. Parrott, the assistant to General Taylor at our request (Mr. Tracy Barnes) two hours previously." They told him they planned to keep fighting as the Cuban Anti-Communist Corps, or the Ejercito Cubano Anti Comunistic. They wanted to become part of the underground movement with access to weapons and to engage in guerrilla warfare. Pekich said he would introduce them to some people.
