Mr. Bayard to Mr. Winchester.

No. 113.]

Sir: It appears by a dispatch from our consul at Zurich, No. 137, of the 24th ultimo, that the anarchists of that city, having threatened the consulate with violence in consequence of the execution of the Chicago anarchists, the Swiss federal authorities, at your request, took the consulate at Zurich under police protection.

I will thank you to express to the Swiss Government the Department’s high appreciation of its prompt action in taking measures to protect the archives and property of the American consulate and the person of the consul from the consequences of apprehended popular disturbances.

I am, etc.,

T. F. Bayard.
