Sir: Referring to previous correspondence in regard to the so-called Cuban “revolutionary claims “of France, Germany, and Great Britain, I have the honor to report that I am informed that it is the intention of President Gómez to appoint a commission composed of the chiefs of the political parties and the presiding officers of both houses of Congress to study the question and to make recommendations as to the course to be pursued by the Government. * * *

Mr. Sanguily has promised to keep me fully informed as to any definite steps in the matter of these claims.

I have, etc.,

Hugh S. Gibson.
