Mr. Ransom to Mr. Olney.
Mexico , October 8, 1895 . (Received Oct. 15.)
Sir: I have the honor to inform you that I have accepted the position of arbitrator between Mexico and Guatemala. The choice comes at the same time from both Governments, and though the work will be arduous and the result possibly not entirely satisfactory, I thought it my duty to undertake the office.
With very high regard,
