The Secretary of State to the American Minister.

No. 2.]

Sir: I enclose a letter1 from Mr. Samuel J. Siegel, dated September 19th, 1913, regarding the orders, issued to Daniel John, said to be a naturalized citizen of the United States, instructing him to wind up his affairs and leave Haiti.

If, upon investigation of Mr. John’s case, you are convinced that the enforcement of the order directing him to leave Haiti would entail unnecessary hardship you will request the Haitian Foreign Office on Mr. John’s behalf for such additional reasonable time to wind up his affairs as the circumstances may seem to warrant.

I am [etc.]

For the Secretary of State:
John E. Osborne.
