Mr. Adee to Mr. McCormick.


(Mr. Adee instructs Mr. McCormick to request that ample time be given to the interested parties to take an appeal from adverse decisions of the prize court, as it is impossible to have their interests properly presented and protected before the prize court without such indulgence. The suddenness of the seizures, the great distance from Vladivostok, the uncertainty as to the method of procedure, and the employment of competent counsel makes this imperative.)
