No. 242.]

Sir: I have received your No. 443, of August 20, 1887, relative to the two Chinese officials who have been selected to visit the United States and other countries during the period of their two years’ sojourn abroad.

A copy of your dispatch has been communicated to the Secretary of the Treasury, to the end that the gentlemen referred to may receive [Page 237] due admission into the United States upon arrival; and you may feel assured that whatever this Department can do to contribute to or promote the success of their mission while in this country will be cheerfully done.

I am, etc.,

T. F. Bayard.
