Washington, D.C.


September 1, 1909.

Dear Sir:

In the absence of Mr. Huntington Wilson from the city I have to acknowledge the receipt of your letter to him of August 28th, in which you request information as to the status of the case of one Francis C. bailey, an alleged criminal in whose return to this country for trial you were officially interested while Police Commissioner of New York.

For your information I may say that on July 28th this Department wrote to the Governor of New York stating that it was reported that Mr. Bailey had been recaptured in Canada and had voluntarily entered the State of Washington, from which place it was expected he would be extradited to New York, and on July 31st the Secretary to the Governor of New York replied that the District Attorney of New York on the latter date reported that Bailey had been surrendered and was at that time in the City of New York.

I am, Sir,

Your obedient servant,


Acting Secretary of State.

General Theodore E. Bingham,
Chester, Nova Scotia.
