I transmit herewith, for the determination of Congress as to whether relief should not be afforded to the owners of the British schooner Lillie, a report of the Secretary of State, with accompanying papers, showing that the vessel sustained damages by a fire which broke out within her while she was being disinfected with sulphur and while she was in charge of the United States quarantine officer at Ship Island. near Biloxi, Miss.
