Mavroyeni Bey to Mr. Gresham.


Mr. Secretary of State: I duly communicated to His Excellency Said Pasha the reply you were pleased to make to my note of May 24, 1894, relative to the hostile publications which certain vagabond persons make against us in foreign countries with the object of blackmailing.

Several of the powers having favorably received the proposal of the Sublime Porte, I have received instructions to renew to your excellency proposals in the sense of the conclusions of my aforesaid note.

The Sublime Porte hopes that the Government of the United States, in regard for the sentiments of friendship which it constantly testifies to it, will be pleased not to persist in refusing the extradition of the persons in question.

I would be happy to receive from your excellency a response in this sense.

Be pleased, etc.,
