Correspondence with Mr. Adams, Respecting Confederate Agents in England, Vol. 8 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Correspondence With Mr. Adams, Respecting Confederate Agents in England, Vol. 8 My Lord, Legation of the United States, London, February 9, 1863. I have the honour to present to your Lordship's attention a number of papers transmitted to me by my Government, as faithful copies of an intercepted correspondence emanating from persons well known to be high officers of the so-called authorities now stationed in Richmond, in the insurgent portion of the United States. These. Papers go to show a deliberate attempt to establish within the limits of this kingdom a system of action in direct hostility to the Government of the United States. This plan embraces not only the building and fitting out of several ships of war, under the direction of agents especially commissioned for the purpose, but the preparation of a series of measures under the same auspices for the obtaining from Her Majesty's subjects the pecuniary means essential to the execution of those hostile projects.
