Mr. Adee to Lord Pauncefote.

My Dear Mr. Ambassador: I beg to acknowledge the receipt of your note of the 5th instant, transmitting copy of a letter from Messrs. Greig, Miskelly, and others, Irish and Scotch missionaries, who escaped from China to Siberia, expressing their thanks for courtesies received from the United States commercial agent at Vladivostock. You join in this expression of gratitude.

It gives the Department pleasure to know that Mr. Greener’s course, in fulfillment of his duty under his instructions, has been thus highly appreciated.

Copies of your note and its inclosure have been forwarded to him.

I am, etc.,

Alvey A. Adee.
