Mr. Vignaud to Mr. Gresham.

No. 190.]

Sir: Referring to Mr. Eustis’s No. 184, of July 3, reporting that your telegram relative to the religious service to be held in Washington in memory of the late President Carnot had been communicated to the minister for foreign affairs, I have now to state that this communication was acknowledged by Mr. Hanotaux under date of the 7th instant. The Government of the Republic, he says, was very much touched by the part taken at Washington with France in her mourning, and he asks that its thanks be conveyed to our Government.

I have, etc.,

Henry Vignaud.
