re Mr. Morgan Gurley
New Orleans

Dear Dr. Smyth,
I sent a certified copy of your
"Deed of Revocation" of Mr. Gurley's power of Attorney
out to that gentleman in New Orleans per
yesterday's mail accompanied by a formal
letter in which I have told him that as from the
date of my cablegram to him (i.e. the cablegram
which you yourself sent in my name) his
authority to represent you in any way was
completely at an end. I made no mention
whatever of the intended visit of Mrs. & Miss
Smyth. Even in the absence of your letter
warning me against this, I should not have
mentioned it, as doing so would be so obviously
contrary to sound diplomacy.
I have the original "Revocation" here still
fully consulated [consulted?] & Mrs. Smyth
can take it with her to New Orleans,
& make whatever use she thinks judicious
of it there, after consulting with her friend
on the spot & spying out the ground.
Mrs. Smyth will please call here
for the original, & if I can be of any
service to her & Miss Smyth in
connection with their voyage I shall be
very glad.
Very Truly Yours,
Philip O'Hagan.
American Consul
L'derry [Londonderry?].
