No action by Headquarters is required. 2. Paul K. Stockwood gave AMLASH/1 5000 francs on 17 February in accordance with reference. AMLASH/1 earlier had stressed to Stockwood that he was completely without funds following his return from Madrid, adding the thought that he was completely 'in our hands' and thus dependent upon us for help. The receipt of the requested assistance seemed to encourage him personally. 3. The safehouse meeting at which the money was passed was brief because AMLASH/1 had an appointment for lunch at the Cuban mission with UNSNAFU/19. There was time, however, for Stockwood to go over each of the questions which was broached in reference. With the exception of information regarding personnel shifts resulting from the recent Cuban chiefs of mission meeting in Madrid, AMLASH/1 had nothing to offer in response to paragraph two of DIR 85502. His material on personnel changes reached the Station, as he said it would, via UNSNAFU/9 and was duly reported. Other items which remained on Matthew H. Ontrich's debrief list and which drew responses from AMLASH/1 have been incorporated in subsequent Station traffic on the points in question...7. AMLASH/1 said on 17 February that he would telephone Stockwood simply to say good-bye before his anticipated departure for Madrid on 19 February. So far as is known here, he did not do so. He knew, of course, that he could get any information of interest to us via UNSNAFU/9. The latter reported that AMLASH/1 actually left for Madrid on 20 February by air. PKS. Paul K. Stockwood"
