Mr. Gresham to Mr. Terrell.


Your No. 3201 received. Your untenable demand that native teachers in American schools be not arrested without your consent may have been due to misapprehension of my telegram of 3d instant. While you will protest against capricious or unreasonable arrest of such persons as occasion requires you will not insist the Government of the Porte shall agree in advance that it will not arrest its own subjects for violating its own laws without your consent.
