Señor Polo de Bernabé to Mr. Day.

Dear Mr. Day: I have just received a communication from the Spanish consul in New Orleans, informing me that at 11 o’clock in the night of the 30th he dispatched in ballast the steamer Ulstein with a cargo of provisions for the reconcentrados, excusing the said vessel from the payment of those duties for her dispatch out of hours which are ordered by article 11 of the tariff.

Very truly, yours,

Luis Polo de Bernabé.
