Mr. Seward to Mr. Cameron.

No. 5.]

Sir: Your despatch of June 26 (No. 2) has been received. The account which it gives of your reception by his Majesty, and by his enlightened minister for foreign affairs, Prince Gortchacow, is very gratifying. And the President especially desires that the government and people of Russia may by your good offices be kept entirely satisfied that they enjoy the cordial friendship of the United States.

I am, sir, your obedient servant,


Simon Cameron, Esq., &c., &c., &c.
