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.,
United States Consular Agent.
