Mr. Angell to Mr. Sherman.
No. 54.]  LEGATION OF THE UNITED STATES,
 * Constantinople, December 4, 1897.
SIR: Referring to your No. 45 of November 15, I have the honor to inform
you that no law exists "to prohibit the importation of all proprietary medicines
into Turkey." Before these can be admitted, however, a copy of the prescription
showing the composition of the medicine must be delivered to and approved
by the Imperial School of Medicine in Constantinople.
I have, etc.,
JAMES B. ANGELL.
SOJOURN OF FOREIGN ISRAELITES IN PALESTINE.
Mr. Riddle to Mr. Day.
No. 179.1 LEGATION OF THE UNITED STATES,
Constantinople, September 3, 1898.
SIR: 1 have the honor to inclose herewith translation of a note verbale from
the Sublime Porte of August 27 last, on the. subject of the Ottoman regulations
which prohibit the entrance of Jews into Turkey.
I also inclose a copy of my reply of the 2d instant. I have, etc.,
 * J. W. RIDDLE.
[Inclosure 1 to No. 179.—Translation.]
The Minister for Foreign Affairs to Mr. Riddle.
 AUGUST 27, 1898.
NOTE VERBALE.
According to information received by the Sublime Porte 45 Israelites have
recently left the United States for Jerusalem.
As entrance to this Empire is strictly forbidden to Jewish immigrants (as
the United States legation is not unaware), the imperial authorities have
received orders to prevent these individuals from landing on the
Ottoman coast. -
The ministry of foreign affairs has the honor to request the United States
legation to be kind enough to notify the proper authorities, and at the same
time to make such communications to its home Government as will induce the
latter to no longer permit the departure of groups of Israelites for Turkey.
