SeƱor Lazcano to Mr. Wharton.

[Translation.]

Mr. Secretary: I have the honor to request that, if convenient, you would be kind enough to furnish me with a certified copy of the note from this legation of July 4, and of the telegram from the consul of the United States at Valparaiso, relative to the declaration of said company in respect to the steamship Itata, deeming these documents indispensable in the proceedings to be instituted by the corresponding tribunal for the Chilean South American Steamship Company in the case of the Itata.

With sentiments of the highest consideration, I remain,

Prudencio Lazcano.
