The Italian Ambassador (Martino) to the Assistant Secretary of State (Castle)
My Dear Mr. Castle: A few days ago I wrote to you a long letter7 concerning the publication of indecent articles against H. M. the King of Italy in some radical papers of New York.
Here enclosed I am sending you a translation of an article which appeared in the issue of July 10th of the Nuovo Mondo an Italian newspaper of New York.7
The article contains, among other indecent expressions, a threat of assassination which is, in my belief, a clear encouragement to crime.
I feel that it is my duty to submit this case to your attention because it seems to me that instigation to commit murder, especially against the Head of a foreign Government, is a crime in itself.
Believe me [etc.]
