No. 249.
Mr. Bayard to Mr. Chang Yen Hoon

Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your note of yesterday’s date, giving me knowledge of the communications to you from your Government in relation to the coming hither of an envoy from the Government of Corea to the United States.

Shortly after having been thus advised by your note I received from the envoy of Corea, Mr. Pak Chung Yang, a letter by the hands of his secretary asking an interview with me at this Department for the purpose of making an arrangement for the presentation of his credential letter to the President.

To this I have replied that I shall expect to receive the Corean minister on Friday next, the 13th instant, at 12 o’clock, noon, and shall thereafter at an early day accompany him to be presented to the President in official audience, in the usual manner.

Accept sir, etc.,

T. F. Bayard.
