Mr. Seward to Mr. Kreismann

No. 2.]

Sir: Your interesting despatch of July 20 (No. 2) has been received. Your views of the impropriety of diplomatic intercession in behalf of Mr. Jaenschke are entirely approved, and in all parallel cases that may arise you will lend no encouragement to the hope that the alleged grievance of an inchoate citizen of the United States, who has voluntarily subjected himself to the operation of Prussian laws, will at this time be made the subject of debate between the two governments.

For the welcome tidings of the improvement of public sentiment around you, in regard to our affairs, you will please accept my thanks.

I am, sir, your obedient servant,


H. Kreismann, Esq., &c., &c., Berlin.
