Signor Carignani to Mr. Hay.


I am in receipt of the following telegram from the minister of foreign affairs:

I learn with profound sorrow of the death of the President, the victim of an assassination which has excited the greatest horror in Italy. I beg that you will immediately convey to the Federal Government and the family of the lamented President these sentiments in the name of the Government of the King and in my own.


Chargé d’Affaires of Italy.
