Dear Mr. Bollinger,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located Domestic Letters, 1784 - 1906 and Letters Received, 1789 - 1906 in the General Records of the Department of State (Record Group 59) that may include correspondence on this matter. These records have been digitized and are available online using the Catalog.

We also located Despatches from U.S. Consular Officers, 1789 - 1906 in Record Group 59
and 9 series of consular records for US Consulates in Cuba in the Records of the Foreign Service Posts of the Department of State (Record Group 84). These might include consular correspondence regarding the matter. These records are not available online. For more information about these records, please email RDT2.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDT2. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
