Mr. Adee to the Duke de Arcos.
Washington , August 9, 1899 .
Sir: Referring to your note of the 20th ultimo relative to the registration of Spaniards in Cuba, I have the honor to inclose a copy furnished by the War Department of order No. 107, issued by the military governor of Cuba.
The Acting Secretary of War is of opinion that this order provides [Page 715] all possible facilities for the purpose. Should, however, you desire that a list of such registrations be furnished to the Spanish consuls in that island the War Department will take pleasure in issuing the necessary orders to the military authorities.
