Mr. Day to Mr. White.
Washington, February 3, 1898.
Send by telegraph copy of prohibitive decree. Protest against same. Urge special injustice of application to large amount of fruit in transit. Damages to large amount impending. We consider that Government liable to indemnity to shippers without notice, and for breach of contract for delivery. If not wholly revoked, decree should at least be suspended to avoid destruction of fruit shipped without notice of prohibition.
