The Honorable

Sir:

The President having designated you Ambassador Extraordinary of the United States on a Special Mission to the Ottoman Empire, I enclose, with office copy, his letter accrediting you in that capacity to His Imperial Majesty the Emperor of the Ottomans; also, a special passport.

You will be allowed expenses of travel and maintenance for yourself and Mrs. Wilson from Paris to Constantinople, during your residence in that city, and the expenses of your return to Paris, or to such other European point as you may elect.

You will draw on the Secretary of State for this expenditure, presenting the customary accounts.

On reaching Constantinople you will make the usual request through the Foreign Office for an audience with His Majesty the Emperor, at which you will present your letter of credence.

I am, Sir,

Your obedient servant,
