File No. 21158.
The Chargé of Austria-Hungary to the Secretary of State.
Manchester, Mass., August 18, 1909.
Your Excellency: Rudolf Warren-Lippit, residing and owning property at Thurnisch, Rann Parish, Steiermark, Austria, claims to be an American citizen and is also in possession of a passport issued by the former United States Legation at Vienna, No. 104, and dated December 31, 1879.
The Austro-Hungarian ministry of foreign affairs has instructed me to ascertain whether Mr. Rudolf Warren-Lippit, as well as his son of the same name, born in 1890 at Thurnisch, Steiermark, are really American citizens.
I therefore have the honor to request your excellency to kindly have this information procured, and permit myself to await an answer in due course.
Please accept, etc.,
