Mr. Koerner to Mr. Seward

No. 36.]

Despatch No. 37, March 21, 1863, just received.

I shall not fail to press the recision of the order lately made at Havana, by the late Captain General Serrano, on the new minister of state, supported by such arguments as your despatch suggests.

Your circular of 23d of March, covering letter of Postmaster General, in relation to postal conference at Paris, will be promptly attended to.

Our consul at Teneriffe is desirous that our cruisers should pay some attention to the ports of the Canary islands. Very suspicious crafts, under English colors, evidently blockade-breakers, come there to coal.

Your most obedient servant,


Hon. William H. Seward, Secretary of State, Washington, D. C.
