Mr. Seward to Mr. Romero
Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your note of the 31st of January last, requesting information respecting the reported capture of the town of Bagdad, on the Rio Bravo.
In reply, I have to state that no official information upon the subject has been received at this department.
I avail myself of this occasion to renew to you, sir, the assurances of my distinguished consideration.
Señor Matias Romero, &c., &c., &c.
