Mr. Webb to Mr. Gresham.

No. 134.]

Sir: Referring to dispatches Nos. 100 and 129 of this legation regarding the case of Joseph Glowacki, an American citizen, I have the honor to state that the matter is at last satisfactorily settled.

You will remember that Glowacki, after having been expelled from the Empire, receiving permission, through the intercessions of Mr. White, to return to Russia, and that at the frontier, while seeking to avail himself of this permission, the order inscribed on his passport by which only he could be enabled to do so was erased by the officer in command at that post.

To-day, in response to several communications, and as the result of several interviews, and after a delay of only two weeks from the time that the matter was brought to its notice, I received from the foreign office full permission for Glowacki to reenter Russia, together with a handsome expression of regret that the misunderstanding at the frontier had taken place. I have issued a new passport to Glowacki which has been duly indorsed at the foreign office, and this would seem to close the case.

I am, etc.,

G. Creighton Webb,
Chargé d’Affaires ad interim.
