Cuban lease documents at Yale Law School

There are three documents at the Yale Law School, Avalon project, that seem to contain the mutual obligations of the USA and Cuba as regards Guantanamo Bay. These are
The texts of the Lease
1. The February 23, 1903 Lease part 1, rules for Cuba
2. The July 2, 1903 Lease part 2, rules for the US Wikipedia summary

Treaty of International Relations between the two countries
3. The May 29, 1934 Treaty of Relations which modified and replaced the Treaty of Relations signed at Habana, May 22,1903.
Among other things, both versions of the treaty mention the lease.
In 1903, that there will be one. In 1934, that there is one, and it's fine.
