Mr. Adams to Mr. Seward.
Sir: I have the honor to acquaint you that I have just received from Mr. Harvey, the minister resident of the United States at Lisbon, a telegram, the language of which is as follows:[Page XXXII]
“Please inform the department that cruiser Georgia has been depredating near Teneriffe, and boarded Liverpool steamer Braganza last Sunday, one hundred and fifty miles from here, heading northward towards British channel. I have notified Kearsarge at Brest, and adopted all other practical measures.”
I have the honor to be, sir, your obedient servant,
Hon. William H, Seward, Secretary of State, Washington, D. C.
