No. 575.

Mr. Frelinghuysen to Mr. Valera.

Sir: Acknowledging the receipt of your note of yesterday, in which you bring to the knowledge of the Department a report of a fresh filibustering expedition against Cuba being actively organized at Key West, I have the honor to say that I have communicated with the Departments of Justice, the Treasury, and the Navy, and with the governor of Florida (by telegraph), to the end that all possible concerted action may be had to prevent a violation of the neutrality laws as apprehended. The result will be made known to you.

Accept, &c.,
