US Legation
Constantinople, Decr, 23, 1894,

To the Honorable Walter Q. Gresham
Secretary of State

Sir - The interview so long delayed with
the Sultan, occured at Gildiz Palace last night,
and was protracted for three hours, during which
the Sultan more than once expressed his embar-
rassment over my persistence, and that of my Gov-
ernment in demanding that Mr Jewett be furnished
with an escort to go and investigate alleged atrocities
at Sassun.

The interview began by his request, that I state
the wishes of my Government in demanding that
Mr Jewett
. This was done in the terms of your dispatch
of the 15 inst. Without waiting for his answer, I in-
formed him that the desire of my Government
was natural, - when our newspapers were full
of details of atrocities, inflicted on Christian
Armenians, and it should be remembered, that
we had more of our citizens living in Asia Minor
