Resolutions [July 25] reported.

inquired whether it was intended to make any allowance to the Ambassador at Constantinople for a winter residence at Pera, or whether he would reside at the new palace which had been fitted up at Therapia?

said, that owing to the great disaster which had occurred at Constantinople, our Ambassador's house there would hardly be habitable in the coming winter. At the present moment the Ambassador had removed his family to Therapia, and no doubt he would remain there as long as he possibly could. If he were unable to remain at Therapia during the winter it would be necessary to find some temporary accommodation suitable for him until such time as a decision could be taken with regard to rebuilding the Embassy House.

Resolutions agreed to.
