Sir: I am in receipt of your No. 22 of the 25th ultimo reporting the favorable impression made in Italy by the publication of a press telegram from Washington to the effect that the U. S. Government proposed taking action looking to the protection of Italian Immigrants from the padrone system.

For your information I inclose herewith copies of a correspondence1 which has taken place between this and the Treasury Department and the Italian ambassador here on the subject.

I am, etc.,
