United States Consulate
Cheefoo, October 8, 1866

Sir:
 I have the honor to inform you that the French fleet returned from Corea, October 3rd. On the 4th, it was reported here that the American schooner, General Sherman had been wrecked, and all on board murdered by the natives. I immediately wrote to the Admiral, requesting him to furnish me with what information he could, to which he replied, viz:
 “In reply to the letter, which you have done me the honor of writing me, I can do no better than send you the exact copy of a note that was sent me by Rev. P. Ridel, apostolic missionary.”
 “On the 30th of September, we were at anchor near Woody Island, on the coast of Corea. During the night, a Corean boat with two natives on board approached the “Déroulède.” Having recognized in one of them one of the sailors who had accompanied me in the spring, on the voyage from Corea to Cheefoo, I succeeded in inducing them to come on board. Among other information, they told me that about the middle of the 7th moon (about the end of the month of August) a small vessel from the country of the West had appeared on the coast of Corea, in the province of Phieng-an-do which is in the extreme northwest of the Kingdom. She was endeavoring to ascend the river, to reach the City of Phieng-iang, capital of this province and had already arrived, almost off this city, when she grounded on a sand bank. The governor at once sent to the King’s father for instructions, whether he should put to death those on board or should burn them and the vessel together. The King’s father replied, to burn the vessel and all on board. This barbarous order was executed. Such, Sir, is the only information bearing at all, upon the matters to which you allude, that has reached me, &c, &c.
 The General Sherman left here on the 9th of August. She called for water, and took Mr. Hogarth as supercargo and Mr. Thomas, as interpreter. The owner of the vessel also went with them.
 A Chinese junk arrived on the 6th from Corea, and stated that as she made the coast, she was met by another junk, who warned them not to go in, as a foreign vessel had been wrecked and all on board burnt, both foreigners and Chinese. The schooner is overdue, and we fear that it is the General Sherman. It might be well to let the Admiral know.

I have the honor to be
Your Obedient Servant
