The Department of State to the Cuban Legation.


The Department of State has received the memorandum of the Cuban legation, dated January 19, 1905, in regard to the claim of Felipe Maza é Ibarra, based on injuries inflicted upon him by American soldiers at Matanzas on September 28, 1901.

The legation should present to the Department the papers and evidence upon which the claim is based to enable the Department to consider its request for indemnity.

The Department has nothing before it in relation to the claim but the statement contained in the legation’s memorandum.
