File No. 767.70/401.

The Secretary of State to the Chargé d’Affaires of Greece.

Sir: I beg to acknowledge receipt of the note under date of the 3d instant by which you were so good as to bring to the knowledge of the Department the fact that on May 30th a treaty of peace was signed at London by the Hellenic, Bulgarian, Montenegrin and Servian delegates, on the one part, and the Ottoman delegates on the other, by the terms of which there will be peace and amnesty between the allied Sovereigns and the Sultan, their states and their subjects, from the time of the exchange of ratifications.

I have noted also your statement that Bulgaria has separately signed a protocol with Turkey, in virtue of which this treaty goes into effect from the time of signature.

I am happy to express to you in behalf of this Government the gratification with which it has been learned that thus much has been accomplished towards the restoration of peace.

Accept [etc.].

For the Secretary of State:
J. B. Moore.
