Sir F. Bruce to Mr. Seward

Sir: With reference to the capital convictions referred to in Mr. Drummond’s despatch of January 3d, from Montreal, copy of which you did me the honor to enclose in your note of the 7th instant, I am able to state that the sentences will be suspended, as in the previous cases.

I have the honor to be, with the highest consideration, sir, your most obedient servant,


Hon. William H. Seward, &c., &c., &c.
