Mr. Adee to Mr. Powell.


If any Haytian person sheltered in your legation is amenable to regular justice on a charge of crime or offense, you should notify him that he can not be longer sheltered against the order of expulsion. The Haitian Government has the right to expel its own citizens, and you can not shield them from the order simply because they happen to be your guests. You may shelter those under reasonable apprehension of lawless violence, but can not harbor an accused offender against Haitian law.

Adee, Acting.
