Mr. Gresham to Mr. Breckinridge.

No. 46.]

Sir: Your attention is called to the Department’s No. 60, of February 28, 1893, to your predecessor, Mr. White, and to his reply of April 11, 1893, No. 81 (see Foreign Relations, 1893).

The subject thereof, viz, the refusal of the Russian consul-general at New York, under instructions from his Government, to visé passports issued by this Department to persons of the Jewish faith, has again come up for consideration.

You are desired, unless good reason to the contrary occurs to you, to present to the Russian Government the views of this Government as contained in the dispatch of February 28, 1893, above referred to.

I am, etc.,

W. Q. Gresham.
