The Italian Ambassador to the Secretary of State.
Washington, D. C. , June 21, 1905 .
Mr. Secretary of State: I appeal to your excellency’s well-known courtesy in order to obtain through you a reply from the Department of Commerce and Labor to the two questions propounded in the inclosed memorandum.
In neither of the two cases contemplated would the imigrant enter as a wage worker. In the first case he is a purchaser of land and is about to become a proprietor; in the second he is an “active partner.”
Please accept, etc.,
