No. 749.
Mr. Blaine to SeƱor Camacho.

Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your note of the 23d instant, communicating the views expressed to you in recent advices from his excellency the minister of foreign affairs of Venezuela, in regard to the questions pending between that republic and the Government of France, and the method of adjustment suggested by the United States to France.

I observe with satisfaction that his excellency appreciates justly the cordial disposition and friendly interest of the United States, and I earnestly hope that the suggestion made by this government may speedily result in a final and satisfactory solution of the long-standing difficulties which have surrounded the payment of the obligations of the Republic of Venezuela.

Accept, sir, &c.,
