Minister Dawson to the Secretary of State.
Santo Domingo, March 7, 1905.
Sir: Referring to your No. 46, of February 6,a transmitting my full powers for the negotiations and signature of the protocol of February 7, I have the honor to report that I exhibited them to the Dominican commissioners, who transmitted them to the President of this Republic. They were found in good form and subsequently returned to me and will be kept in the files of the legation.
At the same time the Dominican commissioners exhibited to me their full powers. A faithful copy and translation thereof are herewith inclosed and the original will be transmitted if desired by the Department.

I also inclose a copy of my note to the minister confirming the production and exchange of our respective powers.
I have, etc.,
