Mr. Seward to Mr. Kreismann.

No. 18.]

Sir: I think it important that you ascertain, as well as you can, what vessels built in France or elsewhere for the rebels of the United States are purchased by the government of Prussia, and keep Mr. Dayton and Mr. Adams well advised on the subject.

I am, sir, your obedient servant,


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