Mr. Denby to Mr. Uhl .

No. 2268.]

Sir: I have the honor to confirm my telegram of this date.

The Imperial Government is doing what it can to check the spread of the riots, but it seems to be powerless. Great fears are entertained for the safety of the foreigners at Chungking. This port is inaccessible to steamers, so that no assistance can be furnished by the foreign powers.

I have, etc.,

Charles Denby
