The Swiss Minister to the Secretary of State.


Mr. Secretary of State: By order of my Government, I have the honor to beg your excellency to kindly let me know if, according to the proclamation of President Roosevelt dated January 1, 1906, absinthe, cherry water (kirsch), and the “bitters” imported from Switzerland to the United States partake in the privileges allowed certain products of the soil and industry of Switzerland by the proclamation.

Begging your excellency to let me have the answer to this question as soon as possible, I avail myself with pleasure of the occasion to renew to you, Mr. Secretary of State, the assurance of my highest consideration.

L. Vogel.
