Mr. Gummeré to Mr. Hay.
Tangier , May 25, 1904 .
(Mr. Gummeré reports that the Sultan has sent vigorous instructions to authorities to act under the direction of the British minister and himself. The negotiations for the release of the captives most unsatisfactory and the situation at Tangier not reassuring. The arrival of the war ship, from which he has so far received no intelligence, is anxiously awaited.)
