Mr. Harvey to Mr. Seward.

No. 211.]

Sir: I have had the honor to receive your despatches Nos. 101, 102, 103, 104, and 105, and circular No. 32, relating to the facilities and inducements offered to settlers upon the public domain under recent acts of Congress.

In exercising the discretion conferred by the circular, I have thought it expedient to give the material facts publicity through the press in those parts of this kingdom from which migration to the United States might be most probably expected.

I am, sir, very respectfully, your obedient servant,


Hon. William H Seward, Secretary of State.
