Mr. Tower to Mr. May.
St. Petersburg , October 2, 1902 .
Sir: I have the honor to inform you that at a personal interview which I had yesterday with the Count Lamsdorff, Imperial minister for foreign affairs, I asked him whether he had any reply to make to your note of the 11th of August in regard to the treatment of Jews in Roumania, a copy of which I had previously left with him according to your instructions.
M. de Lamsdorff answered that he had not as yet been able to formulate a reply, but he wished me to acknowledge to you the receipt by him of a copy of your note and to say that he is giving it his consideration.
I have, etc.
