Sir: I have to acknowledge the receipt of your telegram of the 2th instant, touching an attempt made on the 30th of July last, to subvert the existing Government of the Hawaiian Islands and the landing of men from the U. S. S. Adams to protect lives and property.
I transmit for your files a copy* of the telegram as deciphered and have to express the satisfaction of the Government that the insurrection was suppressed with no greater losses than you report.
I am, etc.,
