Mr. Seward to Mr. Judd.
Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your despatch of the 11th of February, No. 56, and I give you my sincere thanks for the exposition of the political and military movements of the allies in the war against Denmark. Information from London of a date somewhat later than yours induces a belief that some settlement of the controversy is at hand. Nevertheless, this information comes through channels that are not altogether reliable. The British people desire a settlement so earnestly that their opinions and even their facts take a coloring from their wishes.
I am, sir, your obedient servant,
Norman B. Judd, Esq., &c., &c., &c., Berlin.
