Mr. Thornton to Mr. Seward

My Dear Mr. Seward: I give you a copy of a telegram which I have just received from Lord Stanley:

“Nagle, Nugent, Leonard, Lee, and Fitzgibbon, having signed a document acknowledging that they came in the Jacmel, and expressing their regret for having done so, have been set free, and were to sail yesterday for America.”

Sincerely yours,


Hon. William H. Seward, &c., &c., &c.
