Mr. Harvey to Mr. Seward
Sir: The accompanying address was delivered to me a few days ago by a special committee delegated by an association for the improvement of the working classes of Lisbon. I replied verbally at the time, promising a more formal acknowledgment afterwards, which is now also enclosed.
The presentation of this address was delayed by the illness of the president of the society.
I have the honor to be, sir, your obedient servant,
Hon. William H. Seward, Secretary of State.
