Señor Pedro Montt to Mr. Blaine.


I have the honor to transmit herewith a copy of an autograph letter, by which Señor Don Jorge Montt, president of the Government Junta of my country, communicates to His Excellency the President the submission of the entire territory of the Republic to the legal authority.

Pedro Montt.

President Montt to President Harrison.

Great and Good Friend: It gives me great satisfaction to inform Your Excellency that, legal authority being reëstablished throughout the territory of the Republic, the Council of the Government over which I have the honor to preside has fixed its seat at the capital of the Republic. In communicating to Your Excellency the change provisionally made in the rule of the Chilean nation, it devolves on me to state to you that the Council of the Government desires in every way to secure and to strengthen the exalted relations of friendship of the people and Government of Chile with the people and Government of the United States of America.
