Mr. Guzmán to Mr. Gresham.
Washington, April 30, 1894.
Sir: I have the honor, referring to our conversation of this morning, herewith to transmit to your excellency copies of the documents which [Page 461]I showed you, and which relate to the important question of an inter-oceanic canal through Nicaragua.
My Government, being anxious to see that great highway between the two oceans opened up for navigation as speedily as possible, always views with the greatest satisfaction the interest which the United States have for a long time manifested in the completion of that most important enterprise.
I reiterate, etc.
