Mr. Day to Señor Polo dé Bernabé.

Dear Mr. Minister: I am in receipt of your favor of the 25th instant, informing me that you had telegraphed to Spanish consul at New Orleans, ordering him to dispatch in ballast the vessel conducting to Matanzas Mr. Albert Miller’s supplies, and had received reply that such instructions would be complied with. In note of same date I informed you of name of vessel and expected time of sailing.

Accept my thanks for your prompt action in this matter, and believe me,

Very truly, yours,

William R. Day.
