Washington Not Worried About Explorers---Heard From Them Aug. 6
Special to The New York Times
WASHINGTON, Aug. 16---There is no uneasiness here about the safety of Dr. Alexander Hamilton Rice of New York and his wife, formerly Mrs. George D. Widener, who are traveling in the Brazilian wilds, despite reports from New York that they have not been heard from and may have been endangered by the natives in Brazil.

Word was received by the State Department on Aug. 6 that Dr. and Mrs. Rice were safe then. The news came from the American Consul at Para, and said that neither Dr. nor Mrs. Rice had been molested by the natives.
