No. 198.
Mr. Cadwalader to Mr. Hegermann.

Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your note of July 7, in reference to the report of the chargé d’affaires of the United States at Peking upon the question of the protest of the Chinese authorities against the telegraphic line between Woosung and Shanghai, and referring to the services of the American consul-general at Shanghai in that matter, and to say that it affords this Department great pleasure to learn that the efforts of the representatives of the United States have been of value to the interests of the kingdom of Denmark.

Accept, &c.,

Acting Secretary.
