In the conference reported in my despatch No. 866, of March the 22d, it was agreed by Foreign Secretary Lefevre that our representatives should have access to the report of the testimony of the witnesses taken by their judicial authorities, which will give opportunity to ascertain the measure of value of the testimony of the list of eyewitnesses mentioned above.

I have [etc.]
