Mr. Meyer to Mr. Hay.

No. 204.]

Sir: I have the honor to inclose herewith a copy of an applicationa for a passport presented at the embassy last month before my return. The applicant, Antonio Basile, a boy not yet 12 years old, claimed American citizenship through his father’s naturalization; but as he had never been in the United States Mr. Iddings refused to issue the passport. The case is submitted for your opinion.

I have, etc.,

G. V. L. Meyer.
