No. 370.
General Sickles to Mr. Fish.


Since receipt of your cable of 23d, Martos has been ill. Minister of ultramar informed me that he had sent orders by cable and post to the authorities in Cuba to hasten action in all pending cases affecting citizens of the United States. Mr. Mosquera regards these cases as within the exclusive jurisdiction of the Washington commission, and has so instructed the captain-general of Cuba, at the same time directing him to execute promptly the orders and judgments of that tribunal.
