Mr. Judd to Mr. Seward

No. 41.]

Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your despatch (No. 49) dated March 7, 1863, and also your circular dated March 9, 1863, containing the joint resolutions of Congress relating to the subject of foreign intervention in American affairs.

Pursuant to your instructions I had an interview with the minister for foreign affairs, Von Bismark Schoenhausen, on the 29th instant, and left with him a copy of the resolutions. He told me that no application had been made to the Prussian government to join in any measures having for their object an intervention in American affairs.

I have the honor to be your obedient servant,


Hon. William H. Seward, Secretary of State, &c.
