Mr. Seward to Mr. Goñi.
Sir: Your note of the 24th instant has been received with high satisfaction.
I give you herewith, and with the assent of Señor Garcia y Garcia, minister of Peru, extracts from two notes which have been received from that distinguished gentleman, relating to the proposed departure of the Oneota and Catawba for a Peruvian port. It gives me pleasure to add that this government reposes entire confidence in the fulfillment of the assurances on that subject which appear in those notes.
I avail myself of the occasion, sir, to offer to you assurances of my very high consideration.
Señor Don Eacundo Goñi, &c., &c., &c.
