Mr. Hay to Mr. Leishman.
Washington, August 10, 1904.
(Mr. Hay states that the character of the visit of the United States fleet must be determined by Mr. Leishman and the Turkish Government, as no communication is possible with it before its arrival at Smyrna. If its presence is no longer required it will be withdrawn immediately upon being notified to that effect by Mr. Leishman.)
