Mr. Blaine to Mr. Tsui Kwo Yin.

Sir: Referring to your excellency’s note of the 16th instant, in which you inquire whether any new legislative measures have been adopted by the Government of the United States in relation to the transit of Chinese subjects through this country, I have the honor to inform you that no new legislation has been adopted on that subject.

Accept, etc.,

James G. Blaine.
