Sir: Referring to your instruction No. 159 of November 11, 1910, relative to the nationality of Rene Dubuc, I have the honor to inform you that upon inquiry at the foreign office I learn that, in order for Mr. Dubuc to relinquish his French nationality, when he becomes of age it will be necessary for him to apply, through the French consul at Chicago, to the minister of justice for such authorization, and at the same time to pay a fee of 637 francs.

I have, etc.,

Robert Bacon.
