Mr. Blaine to Mr. Egan.

No. 96.]

Sir: I have read with attention your No. 143, of the 17th ultimo, in regard to the progress of the revolution.

The recent correspondence exchanged by telegraph with your legation relative to the mediation of the representatives of the United States, Brazil, and France toward the restoration of peace indicates a prospect, which it is trusted may be realized, of ending the deplorable state of affairs existing in Chile.

I am, etc.,

James G. Blaine.
