Mr. Blaine to SeƱor Pedro Montt.

Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your note of the 24th instant, in which you inclose, with office copy, a letter dated August 31 last, addressed to the President of the United States by the President of the Council of the Provisional Government of Chile, announcing that all the territory of that Republic had submitted to the legal authority.

In reply, I have the honor to say that I have delivered to the President the autograph letter addressed to him by the President of the Council of the Provisional Government, and that his reply will be transmitted through our minister at Santiago.

Accept, etc.,

James G. Blaine.
