Mr. Uhl to Mr. Romero.

Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your note of the 7th instant, in which you refer to your note of December 26, last, requesting, for reasons therein given, a suspension by this Government of discriminating duties on tonnage and cargo now imposed in our ports in the case of Mexican vessels.

The subject of your note was referred to the Treasury and is still under consideration by that Department. As soon as a conclusion is reached it will be made known to you.

Accept, etc.,

Edwin F. Uhl,
Acting Secretary.
