Mr. Adee to Mr. Eustis.

No. 489.]

Sir: I have to inform you that your dispatch No. 345, of the 26th ultimo, inclosing copy of a letter from Mrs. Waller to her husband, dated the 20th of June last, has been received.

I have to say for your information, that no telegram was received from Mrs. Waller or the consul at Mauritius, but a dispatch from the latter reports her arrival there with her children in a destitute condition and the generous assistance rendered to her by Mr. Woodford.

The Department would be pleased to learn that Mrs. Waller’s letter duly reached her husband.

I am, etc.,

Alvey A. Adee,
Acting Secretary
