Sir Julian Pauncefote to Mr. Uhl .
Washington , June 2, 1895 .
My Dear Mr. Uhl: I have the honor to transmit a copy of a telegram which I have received from the Earl of Aberdeen, Governor-General of Canada, in which his excellency asks that the United States Government should oblige the Canadian Government by granting certain customs facilities in the passage of an assignment of stores, including rifles, through the United States territory.
I trust that the request which I have now the honor to lay before you will meet with the same favorable consideration on the part of the United States Government as similar requests made by me on previous occasions.
I have only to call attention to the somewhat urgent nature of the matter in the hope that, should there be no objection, the required instructions may be telegraphed at the earliest possible moment.
Believe me, yours, truly,
