Mr. Seward to Señor Romero.

Sir: I have the honor to call your attention to the outrages perpetrated recently on the persons of respectable American merchants in the city of Monterey, and to request your influence for the speedy adjustment of this unfortunate affair, which at present is attracting so much attention in this country.

I avail myself of this occasion to offer to you a renewed assurance of my high consideration.


Señor Don Matias Romero, &c., &c., &c.
