Mr. Moore to Mr. Hay.
Washington, September 3, 1898.
Sir: I transmit herewith for your information a copy of a communication from the Acting Secretary of the Navy, inclosing a copy of a letter from Rear-Admiral Dewey informing the Navy Department of the invaluable assistance which Mr. E. H. Rawson-Walker, Her Britannic Majesty’s consul at Manila, had been to him.
In this connection I inclose for your information a copy of a note which the Department addressed to the British ambassador at this capital upon learning that Mr. Walker had died on the 2d of August last.
You are instructed to express to the British Government the thanks of that of the United States for the services rendered by Mr. Walker to Admiral Dewey.
