Mr. Guzman to Mr. Gresham.


Sir: I have received instructions from my Government to state to your excellency that, in view of the present tariff law of the United States, Nicaragua considers abrogated by said law the arrangement of commercial reciprocity concluded between the two countries, and that consequently it will henceforth be regarded as nonexistent.

In giving this information to your excellency, I have the honor to renew to you the assurances of my highest consideration.

H. Guzman.
