Abstract:

One holograph letter written and signed by the Earl de Grey (George F. S. Robinson) to Mr. Field on mourning stationery, dated two days after the treaty settling the Alabama claims was signed. It states his delight to hear that Mr. Field is inclined to look with favor upon his work and his belief that the Treaty is equally fair to both the United States and Britain and, if confirmed by the Senate, it will lay the foundation for a lasting friendship between the two nations.
