Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your note of the 21st instant, in which you advise me that the request presented in my note of the 13th instant has been considered by the Attorney-General of the United States, and that he will be glad to concur in the motion to advance a test case in the Supreme Court involving the constitutionality of the Chinese prohibition and exclusion law, known as the “Geary act,” and that he will also do all in his power to secure the advancement of the case and its early determination.
The willingness of the Attorney-General to cooperate with counsel representing the Chinese in such a case will be communicated to Mr. Heber J. May, Washington, D. C., counsel to this legation, and through him to the counsel individually representing my people in the United States.
