To the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States.

I submit to Congress a report from the Secretary of State, accompanied by documents relating to an application by the captain and owners of the Spanish ship Sabina ,* which is recommended to their favorable consideration.


* For compensation for rescuing and supporting the captain, supercargo, and 17 officers and men of the American ship Courier , of New York, which foundered at sea, and landing them safely at the Cape of Good Hope.
