Retirement of Constantin Catacazy

Description:

Report prepared at the request of the United States Senate containing the government correspondence regarding the retirement of Constantin Catacazy, Russian minister to the United States from 1869-1871. President Grant and the State Department sought the removal of Catacazy due to his poor conduct. However, he remained as minister until after Grand Duke Alexei's trip to the United States, because a minister needed to be present for the visit and there wasn't sufficient time to replace Catacazy before Alexei's arrival.
