Mr. Seward to Mr. Campbell

No. 7.]

Sir: I transmit for your information a copy of a telegram* of the 3d instant from Mr. Bigelow, at Paris, giving the substance of a note to him from the French minister of foreign affairs in regard to the military occupation of Mexico. From this it appears that the French troops will be withdrawn altogether from Mexico in March next. It does not seem necessary to modify the instructions heretofore sent to you.

I am, sir, your obedient servant,


Lewis D. Campbell, Esq., &c., &c., &c.
