No. 42.
Mr. de Bounder de Melsbroeck to Mr. Bayard.


Mr. Secretary of State: Belgian manufacturers occasionally send agents to foreign countries for the purpose of peddling linen, woolen, cotton, and other new goods, which they take with them.

Desiring to furnish suitable information to the interested parties who apply to the department of foreign affairs, I have the honor to have recourse to your excellency’s good offices, begging you to be pleased to acquaint me with the laws and regulations which are in force in the United States on the subject of peddling.

I avail myself, etc.,

Th. de Bounder de Melsbroeck.
