Austrian Embassy,
Bel grave Sqre, 24th March, 1873.
Sir,
I beg to acknowledge the receipt of the communication of the London Roumanian Committee, dated 21st inst., concerning the law projected by the Roumanian Chambers as to the sale of spirituous liquors, together with your remarks. I will take care to have the same forwarded to the proper quarter in Vienna.
I have the honor to be,
Your obedient servant, (Signed) BEUST.

Sir,
Imperial Ottoman Embassy,
London, 12th April, 1873.
I have had the honor to receive your letter of the 8th instant, as well as another letter enclosed therewith, and addressed to me by the London Roumanian Committee, and by yourself as President of the Anglo-Jewish Association, respecting Articles 8th and 12th introduced by the Moldavian-Wallachian Legislative Chamber into a project of law relative to a license duty on the sale of spirituous liquors.
I shall make it my duty to transmit that enclosure to my Government, whose earnest solicitude and sympathy for the oppressed Jews are so well known and appreciated by the London Roumanian Committee, and the Anglo-Jewish Association ; and I am sure that if any efforts of the Imperial Government can prevent the sanction of the Articles alluded to, your wishes will be fully accomplished.
In my private opinion I do not think that the electoral law annexed to the Convention of Paris of the 19th August, 1858, denies the rights of electors to the citizens of Moldavia and Wallachia of Jewish faith. But in case I am in error and the articles 8th and 12th of the proposed new law are allowed to stand, then it must indeed be doubly regretted that the 4th paragraph of Article XLVI of the above mentioned Convention, which limits the exercise of political rights to the Christian citizens of Wallachia and Moldavia, may be now so used as to inflict ruinous civil disabilities on their fellow-citizens of Jewish faith.
I have the honor to be, Sir,
Your obedient servant, (Signed) MUSURUS.
Baron Henry de Worms.
