Mr. Terrell to Mr. Gresham.

No. 433.]

Sir: I have secured through an unofficial request the recognition by iradé of the acquired nationality of Socrates Seferiades, about whom there was so much trouble. He is a native Greek and a gentleman. He failed to inform me of facts regarding his business connection with American industries, which, if known at first, would have caused me to recognize his citizenship. The iradé relieves me, and will exempt him from molestation.

I have, etc.,

A. W. Terrell.
