Mr. Takahira to Mr. Hay.

Sir: Referring to my note of the 10th ultimo, in which I had the honor to request that the necessary steps should be taken to secure the permission of the Russian Government for the dispatch of a neutral vessel to Caparison Djaore, I beg to inform you that I am in receipt of telegraphic instructions from his excellency the minister for foreign affairs, in which he informs me that it has been learned from the Russian Government Gazette that the Japanese subjects who were at that place have been transferred to the interior. Under these circumstances the Imperial Government no longer consider it necessary to send a neutral vessel for the withdrawal of these people, and I am therefore instructed to inform you of this decision, and at the same time to express to you the cordial thanks of the Imperial Government for the trouble which you have already taken in the premises.

Accept, etc.,

K. Takahira.
