Mr. Egan to Mr. Blaine .

No. 148.]

Sir: At the request of the minister of foreign relations I telegraphed to-day to solicit a reply to my cable message of 8th ultimo. My telegram, which was in cipher, was in substance as follows: The congressional elections, which took place on Sunday last, were all in favor of the Government. It is reported by the Chilean minister at Washington that my telegram of the 8th was favorably received, but your instructions have not reached me yet. The Chilean Government is awaiting your reply.

I have, etc.,

Patrick Egan.
