The Secretary of State to the French Ambassador ( Jusserand)

No. 1923

Excellency: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your note of the 11th instant regarding a report received by your Government from its Consul at Monrovia to the effect that the Liberian Government has expressed a wish that the German Consul, the German Receiver, and the German women and children be put as early as possible on an English or Spanish steamer bound for England, whence they would proceed to Germany by way of a Scandinavian country, and to say in reply that this Government would have no objection to this, if it is the wish of the Liberian Government, but that the Department has received no advice in that relation from the American Minister at Monrovia.

Accept [etc.]

Robert Lansing
