Mr. Olney to Mr. Smythe.

No. 169.]

Sir: Adverting to your No. 191, of March 2 last, and to your No. 204, of April 30, 1896, relative to the expulsion of Hugo O. Loewi from Haiti, I have to say that the promise of the minister for foreign affairs, made in your No. 191, to furnish you with a statement in writing giving the reasons for Mr. Loewi’s expulsion, has never been fulfilled.

You are accordingly instructed to request that the promised statement be promptly furnished you for submission to your Government.

I am, etc.,

Richard Olney.
