Mr. Adee to Count Vinci.

Sir: I have your personal note of this morning, and in reply it gives me pleasure to tell you I wrote on yesterday to the governor of Louisiana, sending him a translation of your note of the 4th, and adding an expression of the confidence here felt in the assurances which he has repeatedly given to the Department with regard to the Tallulah lynching. I could not well have done so by telegram, as that would involve embodying the text of your note.

With best regards, etc.,

Alvey A. Adee.
