My dear Mr. Tower:

You will find the answer to the question proposed by you in your note of May 10th in the volume of Foreign Relations of the United States for 1898, on page 772, where a Declaration of President McKinley is printed, from which you will see that the United States adhered to the principles of the Declaration of Paris during the War with Spain, although the United States has not, as yet, formally adhered to the Declaration itself.

I am, my dear Mr. Tower,

Yours very faithfully,

[signature]

The Honorable Charlemagne Tower,
228 South Seventh Street,
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
