Mavroyeni Bey to Mr. Gresham.


Mr. Secretary of State: I have the honor to give, hereinafter, to your excellency copy of a telegram which I have just received from the first secretary of His Imperial Majesty the Sultan, with orders to cause its contents to reach their high destination:

The justice which characterizes the American Government is already recognized. By imperial order I pray you to inform the President of the United States that his message of the month of December last, which is in conformity with justice, has met with the high satisfaction of His Imperial Majesty the Sultan our sovereign.

Be pleased, etc.,
