Señor Garcia to Mr. Seward.

Sir: I have had the honor to receive your excellency’s note of yesterday, inclosing the reply of your department to a note of Mr. Ignacio Gomez, the Nicaragua plenipotentiary, communicating to your excellency the offer of his government to intercede between the allied republics and Spain to effect a permanent peace.

The sincere and friendly interest which your excellency has ever shown for the conclusion of that war, and which you repeat in your reply, will be highly appreciated by my government.

On renewing to your excellency the assurances of my personal consideration, I subscribe myself your attentive servant,


Hon. William H. Seward, &c., &c., &c.
