from representativea of trade and In

friendly commercial relations with the
United States, a hearty farewell coupled
with desire of a speedy return.
Together with this farewell we beg you
to do us a favor. As our guests, whom
we have always hopored and protected,
we ask you to take thla paper with you

We beg you to take the following main
points to heart:

1 "The retreat of the enemy after his de
feat at Lemberg assumed the character
of disorderly flight' and panic, and the
Russians took 209 guns and tens of thou

remnant of the second Austrian army is
now no longer of any military value.
"On September 2, when the Russians
were drawing up within' cannon shot of

"We rely on the navy," he said, "with
the most absolute confidence, to guard
our ahores against the possibility of In
vasion and to seal up the gigantic bat
tleships of the enemy In the Inglorious se
clusion of their own ports, whence from
time to time they furtively steal forth
to sow the sea with murderous snares
which are more full of menace to neutral
shipping than the British fleet; and while
the British navy does all this It is thirsty
for a trial of strength In a fair and open
fight, which Is so prudently denied it."
"We now find ourselves Involved with
