The Acting Secretary of State to the Secretary of the Navy (Daniels)

Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge receipt of a letter dated August 27, from the Acting Secretary of the Navy, for the information of this Department, paraphrasing despatches received from the Military Governor of Santo Domingo regarding the presence in Washington of Henriquez y Carvajal and his efforts in regard to the reestablishment of Dominican Civil Government.

I should be glad if you would inform the Military Governor that nothing has occurred to cause this Department to change in the slightest degree the policy with regard to Santo Domingo.

I have [etc.]

William Phillips
