Mr. Terrell to Mr. Olney.
Pera , December 20, 1896 .
At my demand Diradourian, convicted at Trebizond of sedition, has been surrendered to me under orders of expulsion. The release and expulsion of the nine revolutionists in prison at Aleppo promised me by the Grand Vizier. Such people, unless helped to reach Christian ports, must return to prison. Bible House people refuse to advance relief funds from America to such people in distress who have become American citizens. I will, as heretofore, pay their ship passage, but I hope in future .the Government will aid me.
