To these i made no reply and gave no indication of what i thought of the proposition. In Cours or time i waa waited on by a second gentleman from san Domingo who made us Aasne repro and who received in like manner. In View of the Fiou which Msj been Laid be lore me and with an Daniest desire to maintain the Monroe doctrine i believed that i would be do relict in my duty if i did Tot take to Ascer Tain the exact wish of the govern ment an i of the Republic of Sai Domingo a regard to an negation and communicate us in format a to the people of the United attending i Felt if i turned a deaf ear to Appeal i might in future charged with a flagrant neglect of Public and a Niter Diart Gard to the welfare of the Dow trod Dan race praying forum of a free and a Strong government and far Protection in the enjoy of the of Owa in enstry.
