Mr. Seward to Mr. Bigelow
Sir: Your despatch of the 9th ultimo, No. 25, calling my attention to the official denial, in the Moniteur, of the truth of the report in circulation concerning the cession of certain provinces in Mexico to France, and to the communication of the Emperor to you upon the subject, has been received with satisfaction.
I am, sir, your obedient servant,
John Bigelow, Esq., &c., &c., &c., Paris.
