Mr. Day to Señor Polo de Bernabé.

Dear Mr. Minister: I have the honor to acknowledge receipt of your note of the 28th instant, referring to our recent conversations, [Page 725] and informing me that His Majesty’s Government would not object to the sending of supplies to Cuba for the reconcentrados, the amount of same to be appropriated by the Congress of the United States, provided that there would be no change whatever in the existing arrangements respecting conveyance and distribution of such supplies.

Thanking you for your prompt action and interest in this humanitarian undertaking, I remain, etc.,

William R. Day, Assistant Secretary.
