Chargé Carter to the Secretary of State.


I am sending by fast steamer to-day a copy of Sir Edward Greg’s instruction to British minister at Brussels, dated 27th instant,1 in which he explains British Government’s view of the treaty obligations of the Kongo Free State; also what, in their opinion, is required to bring the administration of that State into harmony with these obligations.

British minister at Brussels is directed to communicate this instruction to Belgian minister for foreign affairs, after consultation with Wilson.
