Mr. Vignaud to Mr. Gresham.
Paris, February 18, 1895.
Saw minister for foreign affairs and acquainted him with your views as expressed in telegram received yesterday. He thinks you are incorrectly informed. Has unquestionable proof of complicity of authorities in murder Cacavilli. Has no desire of magnifying difficulties and would have listened to friendly suggestions, but will have to act if indemnity not paid. He appeared to me cooler and not in such a hurry to appeal to force as the last time.
