Mr. Bayard to Mr. Becerra.

Sir: I have the honor to say, having reference to my note to you of this date, that pursuant to a letter from the Attorney-General of the 30th instant, the neutrality case against the City of Mexico is set down for trial on the first day of the next term of the court, which will be May 5 next.

Under these circumstances, I respectfully suggest that you furnish at once such information as you can on the points stated in the letter of Mr. Root of the 29th instant.

Accept, &c.,
