to Mr. Anderson.
Washington , November 16, 1887.
Sir: I have read with much satisfaction your No. 159 of the 18th ultimo, reporting the result of your examination of the question of the official deportation of ex-criminals to the United States. A copy of it has been transmitted to the Secretary of the Treasury for his information.
It is desired that you continue your watchfulness in regard to this matter, and should any actual case of such deportation or emigration become known to you that you should not only communicate it at once to this Department, but also to send information of it to the collector of the port of destination promptly.
I am, etc.,
