Mr. White to Mr. Gresham.

No. 239.]

Sir: I have the honor to receive your dispatch No. 208, of June 18, 1894, with inclosures relative to Stanislaus F. Krzeminski, otherwise known as S. F. Kozeminski, and S. C. Frank; also your cipher dispatch, presumably of July 1, referring to the same case.

To the latter I have cabled you a reply and have written to the imperial minister of foreign affairs stating the case, asking for any information in possession of this Government, and urging that the man be allowed to return to the United States.

I shall call at the foreign office personally, as soon as possible, and have a conversation with the acting minister on the subject, and I may then be able to urge some considerations which can be presented, perhaps, more cogently verbally than in writing.

All that I can do in the matter shall be done.

I am, etc.,

Andrew D. White.
