Nothing should be needed.  It should happen by default.

That Emacs in your case displays \351 is an indication that Emacs
thinks this is a raw binary byte, not a Latin-1 character.  So please
tell how did you get that character in your buffer.  If you can
reproduce this at will, please start with "emacs -Q" and describe here
all the steps needed to reproduce this.
