No. 30.]

Sir: I have received your No. 27, of 26th October last, in further relation to the anxiety of the Christians at Oroomiah—among them, [Page 508] as your No. 28 indicates, being over thirty Americans—occasioned by the atrocious murder of the Armenian Christian Aga Jan Khan, at that place.

You will please apprise the foreign office of the high appreciation with which this Government learns of His Majesty’s benevolent interest in the matter and of the steps taken to protect our citizens.

I am, etc.,

Edwin F. Uhl,
Acting Secretary.
