Mr. Adams to Mr. Seward.
Sir: I have the honor to transmit a copy of a note addressed to me by Lord Clarendon, on the 2d instant, in acknowledgment of mine to him of the 18th of last months in reply to Lord Russell’s valedictory.
Thus I trust, that we have reached the term of the controversial struggle. I concur in the opinion of his lordship that it was time to bring it to a close.
I have the honor to be, sir, your obedient servant,
Hon. William H. Seward, Secretary of State, Washington, D. C.
