Mr. Gresham to Mr. Peirce.

No. 252.]

Sir: I inclose herewith copy of a letter of the 2d instant from Mr. G. Creighton Webb,1 in which are set forth the results of his personal investigation of the disappearance of S. C. Krzeminski.

You are instructed to transmit hither the report of the consul at Warsaw (which Mr. Webb says is in preparation), together with any other information you may be able to elicit.

Without appearing to impugn the announcement of Krzeminski’s death, you should aim to collect corroborating proof of the fact in official form. Your steps to this end should be discreet, and largely guided by the statements of the consul’s report.

I am, etc.,

W. Q. Gresham.
