Mr. Seward to Mr. Adams
Sir: Mr. West, consul at Dublin, in answer to the request of Colonel Warren’s counsel that he would apply to the Crown authorities for a copy of the official report of his trial, stated that he had no authority to do so, and reports the correspondence to this department. You will instruct Mr. West to make the desired application, and transmit the report when received to this department.
I am, sir, your obedient servant,
Charles Francis Adams, Esq., &c.,&c.,&c.
