To avoid this unpleasant condition
of affairs, I have until recently been permitted
to visit the Porte on days not designated,
as those whenˆon which foreign representatives couldˆmay be
received. But now the Ambassadors go on
every day in the week, and yesterday my
humiliation was extreme when after waiting
for an hour on the British Ambassador,
the Austrian came just as I was about to
be received. It was late, + so I passed out
through the retinue of Officers who guarded
the Porte, each knowing that the United States
must defer to Austria

I do not ask that this this shall be remedied
by by creating me an Ambassador. There
are reasons why I think that if it were
done I would ask to be recalled.
But if we are not hampered by having
adopted this arbitrary and unjust
