Mr. Adee to Mr. Thompson.

No. 107.]

Sir: A telegram having been received at this Department on the 26th ultimo from our consul at Santiago de Cuba, stating that you considered [Page 892] a revolution to be imminent and desired the presence of a United States war vessel, the Navy Department was so advised and this Department was informed on the same day that Admiral Luce had been ordered to send one of his vessels from Port Royal to Port au Prince.

The Department has since received information that the Yantic, the vessel so sent, had reached Port au Prince and reports that there is now no apparent apprehension of revolutionary disturbances in Hayti.

It is hoped that full confirmation of this gratifying intelligence will be received from you.

I am, etc.,

Alvey A. Adee,
Acting Secretary.
