Mr. Seward to Señor Garcia.

Sir: I have the honor to give you, for the information of the actual government of Peru, a copy of a correspondence which has recently taken place between this department and Mr. Hovey, United States minister plenipotentiary at Lima, in regard to claims of citizens of the United States arising out of the recent civil war in Peru.

I avail myself of the occasion to offer to you, sir, a renewed assurance of my high consideration.


Señor Don José Antonio Garcia y Garcia, &c., &c., &c.
