Mr. Seward to Mr. Romero

Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your note of the 18th ultimo, with its four enclosures, which have reference to the permission granted by President Juarez to the officers of the United States army commanding in Texas and New Mexico to pass their forces through Mexican territory in pursuit of hostile Indians.

You will oblige me by making known to your government the appreciation which is entertained by the United States for this friendly manifestation on the part of the very worthy executive of the Mexican republic.

You will be pleased to accept, sir, the assurances of my very distinguished consideration.


Señor Matias Bomero, &c., &c., &c.
