Mr. Dupuy de Lôme to Mr. Olney.


Mr. Secretary: I have had the honor to receive your note, dated the 12th instant, relative to the inscription of citizens of the United States in the municipal offices of the Island of Cuba, and I must state to you in reply that I have hastened to communicate the contents of the aforesaid note to the Governor-General of the island, and I am sure that that authority will appreciate the attitude of the Government of the United States, and will give the orders which are desired.

I avail, etc.,
