Sir: Referring to your No. Ill of the 3d ultimo, relative to the case of Henry R. Myers, late consul of the United States at San Salvador, I have the honor to inclose herewith copies of two notes recently addressed [Page 175] by me to his excellency the minister for foreign affairs of Salvador, repeating the views expressed in your No. 111. One of these notes refers to the nature and terms of the agreement entered into by Lieut. Denfield, U. S. Navy, with the secretary-general of the Provisional Government of Salvador, and the other replies to the propositions set forth in the note of Dr. Gallegos of the 26th of last May.

I have, etc.,
