Mr. Seward to Mr. de Stoeckl

My Dear Mr. de Stoeckl: I have received a despatch from Mr. Clay, in which he gives us the pleasing information that his Imperial Highness, the [Page 402] Grand Duke Alexis, contemplates visiting our country during the present year. Whenever it may be convenient I would be happy to confer with you upon this subject at this department.

Faithfully yours,


Mr. Edward de Stoeckl, &c., &c., &c.
