 eral, a copy of which was inclosed in your note of the 7th ultimo, respecting
the
 postal communication from Europe to the United States.
 In reply to your above-mentioned note, I beg leave to assure you that the
influen-
 tially signed expression of opinion inclosed therein will not be lost sight
of when an
 opportunity occurs for recpnsidering the arrangements now in force for the
convey-
 ance of the mails from this country to New York; but, as you are doubtless
aware,
 the efforts which Her Majesty's postmaster-general has from time to time
made to
 adopt the American transatlantic system have not received so much support
in this
 country as would at present warrant a disturbance of existing arrangements.
      I have, etc.,
