Mr. G. F. Seward to Mr. Seward
Sir: Referring to my despatch No. 188, I have now the honor to forward to you a copy of a despatch which I have just addressed to the minister, in the same matter, viz: the expulsion of American merchants from the north bank of the Yangtsi at Chinkiang, together with copies of a despatch from the Tantai at that port, dated October 8, and my response of the 13th of the same month; which deal with various points involved.
I have the honor, &c., &c., &c.,
Hon. William H. Seward, Secretary of State.
