Minister Riddle to the Secretary of State.

No. 26, Roumanian Series.]

Sir: It may be of interest to know that during the last parliamentary session (November, 1905–May, 1906) twenty-seven Roumanian [Page 1249] Jews were naturalized by vote of the Senate and Chamber of Deputies and thus admitted to all the rights enjoyed by Roumanian subjects.

I have, etc.,

J. W. Riddle.
