Count d’Avila to Señor de Figaniere
May 8, 1865.
In addition to my despatch of the 1st instant, I send you the enclosed copies, as well of the despatch which the secretary of the Chamber of Deputies sent to me, under date of the 5th, as of the resolution to which said despatch refers, presented at the sittings on the 3d, unanimously adopted, tending to manifest the regret of said Chamber at the horrible crime committed on the person of the President of the United States, Mr. Abraham Lincoln. Of these documents you will please to give knowledge to that government, stating that they were communicated to Mr. Harvey on the 6th of this month.
Their Majesties and highnesses are going on happily without change in their important health.
Señor Joaquin Cesar de Figaniere e Morao.
