At this period of increasing international tension, German involvement in Haiti was regarded as the reason for the unfriendly tone of the German press toward America's position in the Cuban crisis. There are letters suggesting that United States insurance companies were having trouble with German authorities, and there were more immediate problems in the importation of American apples and pork. There are letters from the Department of Agri-culture and from other food experts. The winter social season at the German court is reflected in an exchange of invitations, and the social correspondence between White and a number of American educators, scholars, and men of affairs continued. There are reports on Cornell events from Babcock, George W. Harris, Hewett and C. Francis Osborne. Some other names that appear on the reel are Charles Francis Adams, James Bryce, Morris K. Jesup, and Emile Lavasseur.
