Mr. Hay to Mr. Dawson.


(Mr. Hay acknowledges Mr. Dawson’s telegram of the 30th ultimo, and states that the United States Government must insist upon the recognition of the award, that it can not review and undo the unanimous decision of the arbitrators, and that the point raised by the Dominican Government was fully covered in the arguments presented before the arbitrators. Any representations the Dominican Government desires to make may be presented after the award has been put into operation.)
