Santo Domingo, [undated]. [Received December 27, 1905].
Have received letter of President dated the 24th, saying that he is about to absent himself from capital in order to reestablish legal procedure, and later on will declare another city temporary capital, and will then name a new Cabinet. He is reported to be 15 miles west, fighting troops sent by Cabinet. American citizens interior alarmed, fearing that landing American seamen would be followed by violence to themselves.
