Transcription

We, the mayor, aldermen, and burgesses of the borough of Pembroke, in council assembled, are anxious to express to you, as the representative of the United States of America, the feelings of disgust and abhorrence with which we heard of the assassination of Mr. Lincoln, the late President of the United States, and more especially at a time when the councils of that great nation required the benefit of his valuable services and judgment.

We also request that you will convey to Mrs. Lincoln and the other members of the family of the late President the expression of our deep and heartfelt sympathy with them under their present bereavement and in the irreparable loss which they have so suddenly sustained; and which feeling of deep sympathy is, we believe, universally entertained throughout the United Kingdom.

We further venture to express our earnest hope that the most friendly feelings may ever exist between the people of the United States and of this country.

Signed on behalf of the mayor and council, and under the corporate seal of the said borough, this 9th day of May, 1865.

[seal.]

JONAS DAWKINS,
Mayor.

To his excellency the Hon C. F. Adams,
 Minister of the United States of America, resident in London.
