Mr. Pruyn to Mr. Seward
Sir: The government have agreed to pay the sum of $10,000, being the bill of damages presented by Russell & Co., for the interruption of the voyage of the Pembroke.
Satsuma has not paid British indemnity, though eight days overdue; explanations have been asked from Gorogio.
I have the honor to be, sir, very respectfully, your most obedient servant,
Hon. William H. Seward, Secretary of State, Washington, D. C.
