Sample text

Because commercial affairs and shipping matters were so high on the consular list of responsibilities, consulates were established most often at ports, although consuls were appointed for major inland cities as well.  Sparks died a few months later as Austrian troops were besieging the city before recapturing it. 12 Many of the best examples of political reporting in American diplomatic archives were filed from consulates. Although both diplomats and consuls reported to the Department of State, the diplomatic and consular services remained separate until 1924, when they were combined by the Rogers Act into the Foreign Service of the United States.

1897, 37.  Dispatch from John Meredith Read to Secretary of State Hamilton Fish, September 12, 1870, State Department Consular Despatches, Paris. : Government Printing Office, 1882), 1008.  minister to France at the time, reported the dramatic event.  .  Deane was instructed to obtain military supplies and explore the possibility of French political and military assistance to the colonies, duties that Benjamin Franklin assumed when he arrived in Paris six months later.  The congressional investigation of his affairs was inconclusive, but Deane was not reimbursed for large financial claims against Congress.

As in the past, the most interesting dispatches usually are not those formally required, but those written spontaneously to report on events or developments of special interest.  Today, virtually all dispatches of whatever length are submitted electronically.  Fortunately, advanced telecommunications systems have enabled present­day dispatch writers to revert to full sentences.  Still, diplomatic reporting remains vital for analysis and policy recommendations, for putting events into perspective, for providing information on countries, regions, and events of little interest to the international media, and for reporting private discussions and confidential information.
