The Secretary of State to Minister Furniss.

No. 121.]

Sir: I have to acknowledge the receipt of your No. 376 of the 13th ultimo, in which you report your conversation with the Haitian minister of foreign relations on the subject of the refusal of the Haitian authorities to allow Mr. Martin J. Iorns, an American citizen, to land in Haiti.

In reply, I have to say that in view of the official expressions of regret in Minister Borno’s note to you, the department does not deem it advisable to raise any further question in this instance. Your course in dealing with the matter is approved, and it is hoped will prevent any repetition of the inconvenience to Americans desiring to land.

I am, etc.,

E. Root.
