The Austro-Hungarian Ambassador to the Secretary of State.

No. 1050.]

Your Excellency: With reference to your excellency’s valued notes of October 8 and 26, 1910, Nos. 596 and 606,1 relative to the extradition case of Moritz Ormai, I have the honor to inform your excellency that inasmuch as this man is—as was subsequently ascertained—a [Page 12] military fugitive, he will have to be tried by the military courts at home for the extraditable offense. Ormai, however, will not be prosecuted on the charge of desertion. Begging your excellency to take notice of the foregoing and kindly to acquaint the United States commissioner at Cleveland therewith,

I renew, etc.,
