Mr. Hay to Mr. White.

No. 1368.]

Sir: I inclose copies of two dispatches from the consul-general at Frankfort-on-the-Main, relative to the defilement of the coat of arms of the United States at the United States consulate at Bamberg.

A new coat of arms will be sent for the use of the consulate at Bamberg, and you will ask for its admission free of duty.
