Memorandum from the Netherlands Legation.

No. 459.]

It appears from a communication of the Queen’s Government that it would attach value to knowing what the expenses for the extradition of persons apprehended in America and extradited to the Netherlands under the extradition treaty concluded between the Netherlands and the United States generally consist of.

It would be of particular importance to know what those expenses are when the whereabouts of the said persons is known and makes it unnecessary to search for them.

Having been instructed to furnish its Government with the above-mentioned information, the royal legation of the Netherlands has the honor to have recourse to the obliging good offices in order to be enabled, if possible, to comply with its instruction in the near future.

It expresses in advance its thanks for such action as may be taken on this request.
