Mr. Moore to Mr. Pratt.

No. 227.]

Sir: I have to acknowledge the receipt of your Nos. 461 and 462 of the 12th and 14th of June last, in further reference to the trial of Minas, the Armenian assassin of Mrs. Wright.

The proposition to have the trial take place at Tabreez, the capital of the province in which the deed was committed, meets with approval.

Trusting that the authorities will have dealt so promptly and justly with the case as to remove all occasion for your visiting Tabreez, and commending the action which you have taken,

I am, etc.,

J. B. Moore,
Acting Secretary.
