Mr. Adee to Mr. Runyon.
Washington, August 29, 1895.
It is reported that charges against Stern are to be supported in part by allegation that he sailed from New York May 9, Hamburg, Columbia, declaring his son under 12. Hon. Isidor Straus sends me certificate that Louis Stern sailed, with wife, four children, two maids, governess, and tutor, on Majestic February 27, this year, and adds that one Louis Stern, of New Orleans, sailed by Columbia in May.
