Mr. Uhl to Mr. Riddle.

No. 184.]

Sir: I inclose for your information copy of correspondence recently exchanged with the Turkish Minister1 here touching the treatment of Turkish subjects naturalized abroad and returning to Turkey.

You will examine and report whether Turks naturalized in other countries receive the same treatment as those who become citizens of the United States.

It would appear from the ministerial note that exclusion or expulsion is resorted to as regards individuals according to the measure of their culpability; but in most of the cases reported during the last six months no allegation of culpability as revolutionists appears. The case of Mrs. Toprahanian and her minor children, at Alexandretta, is especially in point.

I am, sir, etc.,

Edwin F. Uhl,
Acting Secretary.
