Transcription

His Excellency Andrew Johnson,
 President of the United States of America:

The board of directors of the Manchester Chamber of Commerce desire to convey to the government and people of the United States of America, in the most emphatic terms, the expression of their horror and indignation at the dastardly assassination of the late Chief Magistrate of the republic, as also at the murderous assault made upon Mr. Secretary Seward and his son; and they desire to assure the American people that those diabolical outrages have evoked sentiments of the deepest execration from all classes in the United Kingdom,

The directors of the Chamber further desire most respectfully to express towards Mrs. Lincoln, and other members of her sorrowing family, their profound sympathy and condolence under the heavy affliction which has befallen them.

Signed for and on behalf of the directors.

MALCOM ROSS,
 President.

HUGH FLEMING,
 Secretary.
