Mr. Adee to Governor Foster.


I have the honor to advise you that the Italian chargé writes me to-day that Marquis Romano telegraphs him that he has obtained and forwarded documentary evidence, showing that the five men lynched at Tallulah were all Italian subjects, and that three of them appear not to have taken part in the attack which was the cause of the lynching, but were confined in jail at the time the mob entered. It is desirable that you send hither the evidence showing, as heretofore reported to you, that some of the men were citizens of the United States.

Alvey A. Adee,
Acting Secretary of State.
