Cataloged and arranged.
Photostat copies of letters and documents relating to the appointment of Foresti as United States Consul at Genoa, to which the Sardinian government objected due to his activities in the struggle for the unification of Italy. Most of the correspondence is from Secretaries of State William L. Marcy and Lewis Cass to various foreign service officers (John B. Costa, John Moncure Daniel, Michael Guelfi, A. Herbemont) at the Genoa Consulate and in the Turin Legation. There are also some letters from Italian officials.
