Mr. Seward to Mr. Kreismann.

No. 14.]

Sir:Your despatch of July 30, No. 23, has been received, and it has been read with much interest.

The government seeks to cultivate good relations with all nations, and it desires equally to avoid giving offence and finding offence. So long, therefore, as the government of Prussia respects our rights and manifests a friendly disposition, you will not be expected to question it upon the language of the press, however it may be supposed to speak for or in the name of a minister.

Copies of the act to promote emigration will be sent you as you have requested.

I am, sir, your obedient servant,


Hermann Kriesmann, Esq., &c., &c., &c., Berlin.
