Mr. Williams to Mr. Seward.
Sir: I have the honor to inclose herewith the translation of a note from the minister of foreign relations of this republic, acknowledging the receipt of the two packages transmitted through this legation, one addressed “to the government of Salvador,” and the other “to the gentleman who, at the time of the death of President Lincoln, held the position of minister of foreign affairs.”
I am, very respectfully, your obedient servant,
Hon. William H. Seward, Secretary of State, Washington, D. C.
