   SIR: I take pleasure in inclosing for your information and for the
 files of your legation a copy of a letter from the secretary of-the Amer-
 ican Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions, dated Boston, the
 26th ultimo, expressing appreciation of your own and the Department's

   MY DEAR SIR: In behalf of the prudential committee and executive officers
of thc
 Board, I beg to express to you their high appreciation of your kindly offices
in behalf
 of missionaries of the American Board in Turkey, as well as in Micronesia.
Atten-
 tion was called to this service at the annual meeting at Springfielc. Reference
is
 also made to the same in the Missionary Herald of November. I send you a
half
 dozen copies, and beg to call your attention to what is said on page 426,
430, 432, 434,
 and 442.
   Your instructions to Mr. Strans, the present minister of the United States
in Tur-
 key, were all that could be desired, and Mr. Strans has commended himself
to the
 confideice and respect of the missionaries acquainted with him. It is quite
unusual
 for us to receive such favors from the United States Government and they
are on that
 account the more highly appreciated.
      Yours, etc.,                                        N.G. CLARK,
                                                                 Secretary.

    SIR: I have the honor to inclose a copy of a note verbale, received
