Mr. Adee to Mr. Tower.

No. 247.]

Sir: I have to acknowledge the receipt of your No. 454 of the 27th ultimo, reporting the arrest and expulsion from the Russian Empire of Mr. George Kennan, an American citizen.

In reply I have to say that the incident attracted little attention in this country, the expulsion not having been attended with any action occasioning complaint on Mr. Kennan’s part.

I am, etc.,

Alvey A. Adee,
Acting Secretary.
