Form letter.

The Department acknowledges the receipt of your letter of _____________, relative to the present condition of the Armenians in Turkey and to the attitude of the United States Government relative thereto.

In reply the Department begs to state that from the beginning the American Ambassador at Constantinople has continued to remonstrate with the Turkish Covernment against their treatment of the Armenians, and that such remonstrances have been followed by orders by the Turkish Government modifying and ameliorating to some degree the orders previously issued relative to the deportation of the Armenians from their homes.

The Ambassador will continue to use his good offices, to the fullest extent consistent with the position of the United States as a neutral country, in behalf of the Armenians in the Turkish Empire.

The Department has recently instructed the Ambassador to notify the Turkish Government that the reports of the treatment of the Armenians have aroused general and unfavorable criticism among the American people, which is destroying the feeling of good will which the people of the United States have held towards Turkey.
