Mr. Rockhill to Baron Fava.


I am in receipt of your telegram of the 11th instant referring to the newspaper report that three Italians had been taken from the prison at Hahnville, La., and lynched by a mob.

I have at once telegraphed the governor of that State for information in regard to the subject, and will make known to you the purport of his reply upon its receipt.

W. W. Rockhill,
Acting Secretary.
