Mr. Wallace to Mr. Frelinghuysen.
Constantinople, January 25, 1883. (Received February 23.)
Sir: Upon a statement of facts furnished me by Rev. Henry C. 13wight, of this city, I have addressed a note to the minister of foreign affairs, of which a copy is inclosed.
The wrong disclosed is of a kind not to be neglected. In my judgment the only policy to be pursued in such cases is to see that the offenders are promptly and vigorously pursued to some kind of punishment, if only to give notice to the disturbing elements of the locality that somebody has an eye to the rights and personal safety of exposed foreigners. The reply of the Porte is also inclosed.
Very respectfully, &c.,
