Mr. Seward to Sir F. Bruce.
Sir: I have the honor to enclose a copy of a despatch of the 3d instant from our vice-consul general at Montreal relative to the result of the recent Fenian trials at Sweetsburg. I should be glad to know whether we may assume that the capital convictions referred to will be suspended as other similar cases have been.
I have the honor to be, with the highest consideration, sir, your obedient servant,
Hon. Sir Frederick W. A. Bruce, &c., &c., &c.
