Mr. Bayard to Mr. Romero.
Washington, July 18, 1887.
My Dear Mr. Romero: I am much obliged to you for conveying to me Mr. Mariscal’s prompt response to your telegram.
I felt it to be my duty to inform your Government of the rumored apprehensions of Guatemala, and I learn with satisfaction that Mexico contemplates noninterference with the domestic affairs of Guatemala within the line of her own natural self-defense.
I trust that a settled government of law may prevail in Guatemala and am very truly yours,
