Mr. Tree to Mr. Bayard.
Brussels, November 10, 1888. (Received November 26.)
Sir: I have the honor to inform you that your instruction (No. 146) of the 24th ultimo, on the subject of the extradition of Adolph Sambolino, reached me on the 5th instant, and the same evening about 6 o’clock Mr. Charles Heidelberg, the agent of the Government, called at the legation with the necessary papers. As Mr. Heidelberg was anxious to return by the steamer of Saturday from Antwerp, I forthwith remitted the papers to the minister of foreign affairs with a note urging speedy action in the case, a copy of which is herewith inclosed. Although I have not yet received formal notice from the foreign office of Sambolino’s surrender to Heidelberg, I have every reason to believe that it has been done and that he sailed to-day accompanied by his prisoner.
I am, etc.,
