Mr. Seward to Mr. Kreismann.

No. 13.]

Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your despatch of July 22, No. 22. The intention in regard to Baron von Gerolt, which you have expressed therein, is approved.

I thank you for the exposition of Russian and Austrian policy, relative to the provinces lately disputed with Denmark, with which you have favored me.

It is gratifying to learn that the late demonstration of the insurgents near this capital was regarded in Europe in its true light. This fact has some tendency to show that the public mind in foreign countries is coming back to its normal condition in regard to the United States.

I am, sir, your obedient servant,


Hermann Kreismann, Esq., &c., &c., &c., Berlin.
