Government of the Canton of Uri
Council of the Canton of Uri to the Bundesrath, in Berne.
Gentlemen: Willingly following the example of other cantons, we have the honor to inform you that in our session of this day we have unanimously resolved to assent to the general address of sympathy and condolence of the Swiss confederation to the North American Union, on account of the assassination of its excellent President, Abraham Lincoln. We have no doubt but this sympathy is universal, and we send you this declaration that you may take due notice of it and forward it to its place of destination. In the mean time, we give our best wishes for your prosperity, and recommend you to the protection of Divine Providence.
In the name of the council:
- K. E. MULLER, President.
- GISLER, Secretary.
