Arrangements for sending two priests you requested are ready. Mola was expelled. Why is he on the list? Francisco has not contacted us. The student arrived and spoke with us, good news. Cannot carry out propaganda without materials and money. Maria Antonia can give full info on bonds we requested. 2. Also, 'We declare that for one reason or another none of our material request have been satisfied. We wish 'Javier' (AMBIDDY-1) to know that we are not willing to continue the correspondence game. This is the last time we will make a request and if it is not complied with we will terminate the association since we will not continue making promises to those entrusting us with their lives while we cannot keep those promises. If you provide what you have promised we will carry on the task.' 3. Lino requested visas for Dr. Roberto Maury Palop, M.D. and Dr. Luis Fernandez Lopez. HAVA will assist. 4.

104-10240-10203: CABLE: AMBIDDY-1 REPLIES: I AM PAINED YOUR RECENT URGENT MSG SINCE

09/04/60, Cable from JMASH to Director: "1. AMBIDDY-1 replies: 'Am pained your recent urgent MSG since indicates lack faith in me and supposition I am not doing my duty. With arrival Cuba Francisco many your questions will be answered. He should be making contact momentarily. As for the boat, Francisco has been trained for this type op as well other types. Fine on the two priests. Don't understand on which list Mola appears since he no longer of MRR. The bonds are printed and will leave immediately although they may take week or two to arrive.' 2. MASH assumes AMRUNG-1 (Gonzales Corzo) is Francisco. But is confused on identity. Believe (as stated above) his arrival will reestablish faith in Bender/AMYUM/AMRASP support activity outside Cuba. If AMRUNG-1 not Francisco, suggest HAVA doctor above MSG. S/C Note: *Delayed in transmission."
