1867-05-01 THE PRICE OF RUSSIAN AMERICA

London Times, 1 May 1867, p. 12: THE PRICE OF RUSSIAN AMERICA.

            A Paris correspondent of the Indépendance Belge mentions a report current in that city that the cession of Russian America to the United States is not to be paid for in money, but in kind -- by the transfer to Russia of the vessels composing the American squadron now in Mediterranean waters.
