No. 336.
Sir L. S. Sackville West to Mr. Bayard.

Sir: Her Majesty’s Government have instructed me by cable to ascertain whether under the existing law Irish emigrants sent out at the public cost and who have friends in the United States able to help and support them will be allowed to land, and I have the honor, therefore, to request you to be good enough to enable me to reply.

I have, etc.,

L. S. Sackville West.
