The Consul at Barcelona (Franklin) to the Secretary of State

British Admiral informs me that all Americans desiring to leave Palma de Mallorca will be taken on British warship tonight. I assume that Consul Longyear has received this information through the British Vice Consul at Palma de Mallorca as I am not in communication with him.

In view of numerous telegrams received at this Consulate General from interested parties inquiring whereabouts and welfare of Americans in Palma de Mallorca the Department may desire to give this information widest publicity.
