Mr. Eustis to Mr. Gresham.


President Carnot’s funeral yesterday was very imposing, and as a tribute of the national grief was worthy of France. The whole ceremony lasted six hours. The cost of floral wreaths, exceeded 2,000,000 francs. The popular demonstration was most orderly, respectful, and sympathetic.

Though not well, and the heat was intense, I accompanied the cortege on foot. His remains rest in the Pantheon.
