Mr. Terrell to Mr. Olney.

No. 919.]

Sir: I have the honor to inform you that the Rev. Mr. Baird, a missionary educator, has gone to Bitlis to supply the place of the Rev. George Knapp. In pursuance of the agreement with me by the Turkish Government that when a missionary was withdrawn another should take his place, every facility was afforded to Mr. Baird by traveling teskereh, etc., by the Government.

I have, etc.,

A. W. Terrell.
