Mr. Tripp to Mr. Gresham.

No. 51.]

Sir: Referring to my dispatch No. 50, under date of October 29 last, relative to the claim of Edgar W. Mix for damages for arrest and detention by the local authorities at Przemysl, Galicia, I have the honor to submit herewith copy of a letter of Mr. Mix, recently published in the European papers, and in the Paris Herald of October 29, 1893, in which, while blaming the Austrian authorities for their overzealous action, he practically admits his own imprudence.

I have, etc.,

Bartlett Tripp.
