Ministry of Foreign Affairs
All-Russian Royal General Consulate
in San Francisco
June 13, 1879
To His Eminence Nestor,
Bishop of the Aleutians and Alaska
Most Merciful Pastor,
I have the honor to let Your Eminence know about the appointment of the citizen of the North American United States Mr. G. Niebaum as a Vice-Consul in San-Francisco.
Leaving for a vacation in Russia, having received permission from the Imperial Ministry of Foreign Affairs, I delegate G. Niebaum, as the Vice-Consul, to manage the affairs of the General Consulate entrusted to me. I supplied instructions to him and consider it my duty to send to Your Eminence for Your information an extract.
Entrusting myself to Your holy prayers I humbly request You to accept my complete and sincere respect and devotion.
With that I have the honor to remain Your Eminences humble servant,
