Mr. Seward to Mr. Adams

No. 2114.]

Sir: Your dispatch of the 6th of December, No. 1489, has been received. I approve of the manner in which you have carried out the [Page 130] instructions in my 2087. At the same time, I observe with regret that Lord Stanley has not found it convenient to indicate any practical way of removing the difficulties thus brought to his notice.

I am, sir, your obedient servant,


Charles Francis Adams, Esq., &c., &c., &c.
