I send enclosed herewith an original letter dated the 4th inst. and addressed to the Attorney General by the Marshal of the Southern District of New York, relating to the Spanish gunboats. After having read it, and taken a copy, if you desire it, will you be so kind as to return it, and inform this Office of the wishes of the Department of State in respect to the matters stated in the letter of the Marshal.

Very respectfully

your obedient servant,
