Mr. Adee to Mr. Powell.


If newspaper telegrams correctly state Duvivier case your remonstrance against violation and demand for refugee’s return were rightly made. He should be sheltered against all but strictly regular legal process. Should he or any other refugee be demanded on regular warrant, you should decline judicial service upon legation, saying you can only recognize a request made through minister of foreign affairs. If such request be made, refer it to this Department for instructions.

Adee, Acting.
