Mr. Léger to Mr. Day.


Mr. Secretary of State: I have had the honor to receive your note of the 15th instant by which you are pleased to inform me of the forms which the Department of State desire to see observed by vessels of war of neutral powers entering ports of Cuba and Porto Rico, now in a state of blockade, or in leaving said ports.

In thanking you for this communication, which I shall not fail to transmit to my Government, I avail with pleasure of this occasion to renew to you, etc.

J. N. Léger.
