Mr. Seward to Mr. Sanford .
Washington, August 12, 1861.
Sir: Your despatch dated July 3 (No. 11) has been received.
I am quite content, under existing circumstances, with the disposition you propose in that paper to make of the subject of passports, and I acquiesce very cheerfully in the views which you take of the importance of vigilance in regard to the movements of disaffected citizens of our own country travelling in Europe.
I am, sir, respectfully, your obedient servant,
Henry S. Sanford, Esq., &c., &c., &c., Brussels.
