Señor Polo de Bernabé to Mr. Day.

Dear Mr. Day: In compliance with your verbal request, I telegraphed yesterday to the Spanish consul at New Orleans, ordering him to dispatch in ballast the vessel conducting to Matanzas Mr. Albert Miller’s supplies, provided, of course, that such vessel should not carry any other sort of cargo. I received last night a telegram from Mr. Peter Petinto, advising me that my instructions would be complied with. I wait for the name of the vessel to telegraph to Cuba.

Yours very truly,

Luis Polo de Bernabé.
