Mr. Hay to Mr. Griscom.


[Mr. Hay states that the President is confident that His Majesty the Sultan will keep the promise so long ago made to pay indemnity of £20,000, thereby removing all differences between the two Governments and confirming their friendly relations.

Mr. Griscom is directed to ask that an early day be set for the payment of the sum due, and to once more invite the attention of His Majesty and of the Sublime Porte to the serious nature of the representations made by him on April 24.]
