Mr. Secretary: I have the honor to inform you that, by a cablegram of this date, my Government directs me to give to the Government of the United States the assurance that the amnesty law recently voted by the Cuban Congress does not comprise offenses against the law of nations and, therefore, does not affect the status of those who may be found guilty of attacks on the members of the Legation of the United States.

I avail [etc.]
