Swiss Residents of Bucharest
To the Editors of the “Bund,” in Berne;
Your appeal to the Swiss people to perform an act of patriotism in presence of the great events that have just occurred in the United States has found a powerful echo among us.
We consider it our duty to add our signatures, with those of our fellow-citizens, to the two proposed addresses—one of congratulation for the victorious cause of the republic, the other of condolence on the occasion of the death of its worthy President Lincoln.
As the news reached us late, on account of our great distance, we sent a telegram ordering our signatures to be affixed in time.
I enclose the original of the despatch and signatures, which you will please annex to the national address.
Accept the expression of our perfect consideration.
