Mr. Uhl to Sir Julian Pauncefote.

Excellency: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your note of the 25th instant, transmitting copy of the “Regulations for preventing collisions at sea as finally adopted by Great Britain,” which Her Majesty’s Government propose to enforce on and from the 1st of March, 1895, and expressing the hope that the same course will be adopted by this Government in order that the rules may become law in both countries on the same day.

I have submitted the matter to the Secretary of the Treasury for an expression of his views.

I have, etc.,

Edwin F. Uhl.
