No. 253.]

Sir: I have received and perused with much satisfaction your despatch of of the 24th of May last, in which you state that his imperial highness the Grand [Page 393] Duke Alexis contemplates visiting the United States during the present year. The question of the manner of his entertainment will receive early consideration, and the result will be imparted to you.

I am, sir, your obedient servant,
