Mr. Gummeré to Mr. Hay.


(Mr. Gummeré reports that a letter from one of the Shereefs of Wazan has been shown to the British minister in which it is stated that guaranties are demanded by the brigand, from the British minister and himself, that neither Raisuli nor his tribe will be molested by the Moorish Government, but allowed to till their fields; and that the arrest of the sheiks in accordance with his demands shall be accomplished within a month.

Mr. Gummeré adds that it would be well to await the return of the messenger of the minister for foreign affairs, in order to learn whether the guaranties are really demanded. That his instructions forbid his giving such guaranties is fully understood by Consul-General Gummeré.)
