The French Ambassador (Jusserand) to the Secretary of State


Mr. Secretary of State: In transmitting to your excellency under date of July 27 last, certain information calculated to help the American police in their investigation of the case of incendiary bombs placed in vessels at the time of their departure from the United States, I expressed the satisfaction it would afford me to receive like information about cases of the same kind that might be gathered here which, from a previous communication, I had reason to expect.1

I take the liberty of reminding your excellency of that kind promise and shall be very thankful for any information you may be able to supply.

For my part, to assist the work of the authorities concerned and further enlighten your excellency on those criminal attempts, I have the honor to submit herewith copies of three more commissions rogatory received by the Consul General of France at New York.1

Be pleased [etc.]
