Mr. Uhl to Mr. Bayard .
Washington , April 5, 1895 .
Sir: I inclose herewith copy of a dispatch, No. 11, of November 19, 1894, from the United States commercial agent at Swansea, in regard to the treatment of men employed to care for cattle shipped on steamers plying between the United States and European ports; also, copy of correspondence had with the Danish minister at this capital1 and with the Treasury Department, touching this subject.
You will bring this matter to the attention of the British Government, expressing regret that our laws do not afford a means of remedying the evil complained of, and suggesting that local regulations might be invoked to prevent the landing of such men unless provision is made for their temporary support or reshipment.
I am, etc.,
