No. 372.
General Sickles to Mr. Fish.

[Telegram.—Received 8.49 p.m.]

Interview with minister of state to-day. Under date of 28th ultimo, minister of ultramar sent royal orders by post to captain-general of Cuba to hasten and facilitate action in cases of Mora and Mueses. Telegrams likewise sent in same sense respecting these and other cases of embargo. For reasons you will appreciate, having reference to the situation in Cuba, this government can enforce judgments of the mixed commission in favor of claimants with less difficulty and delay than are incident to voluntary release.
