Mr. Tillman to Mr. Olney.

[Appendix to No. 73.]

Sir: I have the honor to append to my No. 73, which has just been closed, a copy and translation of a note just received from the the minister of foreign affairs accepting Mr. St. John as arbitrator in the Santos case. I expect now an early settlement and an award by the arbitrator, as I have insisted all the time was the proper way to adjust the affair. I will cable you to morrow.

Yours, etc.,

James D. Tillman.
