It is inferred from some indications that the Marquis d’Yrujo, has it in view to visit this place and even to pass the Winter with the Govt. The footing on which he stands, renders it improper to continue the diplomatic intercourse with him, and will make it necessary that he should not remain indefinitely in this Country in his public Character. It can hardly be supposed that he is left...
I have been duly favored with yours of the 31. Decr. The latitude taken by the Marquis d’Yrujo under the indulgence concurred in towards him by the arrangement at Madrid, and the continuance of his disposition to visit Washington, make it necessary that he should explicitly understand it to be the desire of the President that he should desist from such a visit. Will you be so obliging...

General Turreau is informed that prosecutions will be immediately instituted in the case, and the President desires that the proper steps for that purpose may...
The enclosed paper will put you in possession of a complaint just received from Mr. Foronda. He has been informed, by authority from the President, that it would be transmitted to you, who would make the proper enquiries and take the proper steps in the case.
