June 19, 1869. Hon. Hamilton Fish, Secretary of State. Sir: I have read your letter of this date just received, with the accompanying papers, which were addressed to your Department by Mr. Roberts, Minister from Spain, relative to alleged illegal proceedings in New York, with reference to Cuba. Mr. Roberts should cause to be prepared an affidavit of the person or persons who know the facts stated in his paper, to be laid before the District Attorney at New York forthwith. Without such an affidavit, that officer would not have the means of procuring the indictment and arrest of the persons implicated. I will telegraph to the Marshal at New York to keep a watch upon the places referred to.—I return the papers, as you request, and recommend that they be sent to the District Attorney at New York. I have the honor to remain Yours respectfully, E. R. Hoar, Attorney General.
