No. 961.
Mr. Bayard to Mr. de Struve.

Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of Baron Rosen’s note of 7th ultimo, calling attention to the preliminary work to be done pending the actual session of the delegates to the fourth international prison congress, which meets at St. Petersburg in 1890, and to say in reply that the matter of the appointment of a delegate on the part of the United States is receiving special attention in Congress; and I have communicated to the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations the suggestion of Baron Rosen’s note.

Accept, etc.,

T. F. Bayard.
