[Translation.]

Torre del Greco, May 6, 1865.

The common council of Torre del Greco to the United States Consul in Naples.

All those who have human hearts, and desire the improvement of the human race, have been moved by the news of the assassination of that illustrious patriot, Abraham Lincoln. The announcement of the unfortunate incident spread feelings of horror throughout Europe, and excited our deepest indignation.

The common council, as interpreter of the feelings of the inhabitants of this town, in its session of the 30th of April last, resolved to send the enclosed address of condolence to the American Congress. I have the honor to send it to you, Mr. Consul, requesting you to forward it to its place of destination.

ANTONIO A. BRANCACCIO,
Mayor.
