Mr. Adee to Mr. Hirsch .

No. 217.]

Sir: I am gratified to learn by your No. 284 of 7th instant, that your note of 15th December last to the Porte, has apparently had the effect to cause the unconditional issue to the Rev. Henry Easson of Latakia, of the building permit which he had asked in vain of the local authorities.

I am, etc.,

Alvey A. Adee,
Acting Secretary.
