aide mémoire.

From reports received from the American Minister at Habana the Government of the United States notes with surprise that the Government of Cuba seems to be displaying apathy in the prosecution of those persons responsible for the recent scurrilous newspaper attacks on the personnel of the Legation.

It is with regret that the Government of the United States finds itself obliged to direct the attention of the Government of Cuba to this matter and to insist that the persons guilty of those attacks be adequately and speedily dealt with.

Department of State,
Washington, February 20, 1913.
