File No. 839.00/407.

The Secretary of State to the Danish Minister.

My Dear Mr. Minister: The Department is in receipt of a telegram from the American Legation at Santo Domingo City to the effect that the minister for foreign affairs informs the American chargé d’affaires that an expedition is now being prepared by Horatio Vásquez from St. Thomas. The minister for foreign affairs requests that instructions be issued to the American consul at St. Thomas to endeavor to prevent the expedition setting forth from that place.

I have the honor to request that you be kind enough to transmit this information to your Government.

I am, etc.,

P. C. Knox.
