Bulgarian Government has just notified me that Mr. S. Panaretoff has been chosen as first Bulgarian Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary to the United States and asks if his appointment is agreeable to our Government. Mr. Panaretoff graduated from Roberts College, Constantinople, 1871, and has been professor of Bulgarian language and literature there for many years. He was sent in 1880 on special mission to England, and is married.
