No. 1317.]

Sir: I inclose copies of correspondencea with William H. Greevy, M. D., relating to certain South African Republic bonds purchased by him and which he now desires to collect from the British Government.

[Page 792]

It will be observed that the claimant asserts that under the terms uopn which peace was concluded between Great Britain and the two Boer republics, the Government of Great Britain is bound to redeem the bonds in question, and is doing so.

The department has no official information relating to the terms of the peace protocol, and would be glad if you would obtain and forward full information upon the subject.

I am, sir, etc.,

John Hay.
