Mr. Gresham to Mr. White.
Washington, June 30, 1894.
Referring instruction mailed 18th, Krzeminski citizenship established. Naturalized Newark, N. J., October 14, 1874. Continuously resided here twenty five years. Received passport March 1, this year; name spelled Kozeminski by mistake. Never called Frank: son so known, which has given rise to confusion. The father well known and highly respected. Petition addressed to me signed by several hundred influential representatives of State and city governments, bench, bar, and mercantile community of western New York. President deems it important that you use utmost endeavors to obtain reversal of Siberian sentence, if it be a fact, which is doubted, and permission to quit Russia. Report action by telegraph.
