Minister Dawson to the Secretary of State.

No. 199.]

Sir: Continuing the subject of my No. 197, of the 15th instant,a political events in this Republic, I have the honor to report that all has been quiet in this capital since that date and no news of trouble in any part of the Republic has reached me.

The only points which give me any uneasiness are Puerto Plata and Monte Christi.

Vice-President Caceres left across country for La Vega, Santiago, and Puerto Plata on the afternoon of the 18th. He goes to the latter place with the intention of securing the adherence of the governor, Fermin Perez, to the arrangement reached between the President and the Horacistas.

I have, etc.,

T. C. Dawson.
