Mr. Manion to Mr. Olney.

Sir: I am in receipt of your cable of January 12, 1896. To this I have cabled reply.

I have every reason to believe that President Kruger and his Government will take a fair and honorable attitude to all aliens in the Transvaal. I will keep you fully and promptly advised of the progress of all matters affecting American citizens.

I have, etc.,

J. C. Manion,
United States Consular Agent.
