No. 198.


Colombian Minister, Washington:

Yesterday afternoon Aizpurú arranged with the American admiral that the latter’s forces should retire to the railway station, those of Aizpurú to maintain order in the city until the arrival of the expedition from Cauca (Buenaventura), when they will go out of the city with full liberty to give battle in the open country.

Between 7 and 8 at night the Americans retired.
