No. 13.

Mr. Everett to Mr. Webster.

Sir: * * * * * * *

Lord Aberdeen, in the conference which ensued after the exchange of the ratifications, observed that his only subject of regret in connection with the treaty was, that the boundary between the two countries on the Pacific Ocean had not been provided for; and expressed a strong wish that I might receive instructions on that subject. * * * * * *Lord Aberdeen wishes to settle the Oregon boundary.


Daniel Webster, Esq., Secretary of State.
