Mr. Day to Señor Polo de Bernabé.

My Dear Mr. Polo: I have your favor of to-day, stating the abrogation of the reconcentrado order. I am at a loss to know precisely whether the order has been abrogated entirely or simply as to the western provinces. I am also in doubt as to the meaning of the term “western provinces.” May I ask you to kindly advise me whether it is meant to be stated that the reconcentrado order is entirely abrogated or only as to the western provinces; and, if the latter, what provinces are included in the general designation “western provinces?”

I am greatly obliged for your courtesy in so promptly transmitting to me your information of this important action, and I avail myself, etc.

William R. Day.
