Mr. Baker to Mr. Gresham.
Managua, February 9, 1894. (Received March 5.)
Sir: I herewith transmit a petition forwarded to me by Consul S. C. Braida, of Grey Town, Nicaragua. The petition briefly sets forth the unsettled condition of affairs in the Mosquito Reservation; and the signers respectfully ask that a United States war vessel be sent to that coast for the protection of American interests. Consul Braida earnestly indorses this application.
Respectfully submitted, etc.
