Mr. Gresham to Prince Cantacuzène.

My Dear Prince: The President and Mrs. Cleveland, the members of his Cabinet and their wives, and Mr. Bayard, our ambassador at London, and his wife, will testify their respect for the memory of the late Emperor by attending the funeral services at your legation on Friday at 10 o’clock a.m.

I have requested the chief of police to call and receive any directions you might desire to make for the occasion.

Faithfully yours,

W. Q. Gresham.
