Sir: I have the honor to inform you that I am instructed by the Marquis of Salisbury, Her Majesty’s principal secretary of state for foreign affairs, to protest against the seizure of the Canadian vessel Alfred Adams, in Behring Seas, and against the continuation of similar proceedings by the United States authorities on the high seas.

I have, etc.
