Mr. Terrell to Mr. Olney.
Constantinople , November 25, 1896.
Telegram from Harpoot that twenty-six wives with children of naturalized Americans, for whom I applied to the Sultan, will leave there at once for America under escort of my cavas to the seashore, and that twenty-three more such women and naturalized Americans not yet ready will leave in a few days. Also a telegram from Marash that the governor there facilitates departure of all persons applied for by me. Until now the governor of Harpoot has obstructed the orders of the Porte.
