Mr. Adee to Mr. Powell.

No. 362.]

Sir: I have to acknowledge the receipt of your No. 613, of the 2d instant, reporting the forcible removal from the United States consulate by Haitian soldiers of Mr. Ulrick Duvivier, who had taken refuge in the consulate. You further report that you demanded his return, and that the Government of Haiti acceded thereto.

This appears to end the acute stage of the incident. Mr. St. Victor’s frank disavowal of the unwarrantable action of the soldiery in invading your domicile and his expression of regret therefor are appreciated.

I am, etc.,

Alvey A. Adee, Acting Secretary.
