Transcription

Bengal Chamber of Commerce, Calcutta, June 3, 1865.

Sir: As chairman of a general meeting of the Bengal Chamber of Commerce held this day, I have the honor to place in your hands a copy of a resolution unanimously adopted by the meeting, and to request you will have the goodness to transmit the same to the Secretary of State of the government of the United States.

The resolution records the horror with which the commercial community of this city view the assassination of the late President of the United States, their sympathy in the calamity which the American nation has suffered by the lamented death of their eminent Chief Magistate, and their earnest hope that the long-continued war may be happily terminated by an early restoration of peace, lasting and prosperous.

I have the honor to be, sir, your most obedient servant,

BULLEN.

Nathaniel P. Jacobs, Esq.,
 Consul General for the United States of America.
