§ MR. FLYNN
I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he can say whether the British Ambassador has recently had a prolonged interview with the Grand Vizier in which he urged the immediate acceptance of the scheme for the reform of the Macedonian gendarmerie; if so, what was the date of that interview; and, what reply, if any, has been received from the Government of the Porte.
§ EARL PERCY
His Majesty's Ambassador had a prolonged interview with the Grand Vizier on the 21st instant, when he urged the immediate acceptance of the scheme without modification. The reply of the Porte to the Austro-Hungarian and Russian Ambassadors' note was received on the 25th, and its general tenor is understood to be of a satisfactory character.
