Mr. Olney to Mr. Dupuy de Lôme.

No. 33.]

Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge your telegram of the 19th instant, and to say that copies of the same have been communicated to the Departments of Justice and of the Treasury with the request for such immediate official action as will tend to prevent any violation of the neutrality laws of the United States or to punish any such violations as actually occur.

Accept, etc.,

Richard Olney.
