Mr. Olney to Mr. Buchanan.

No. 186.]

Sir: I have to inclose for your information, and for such action as you may find practicable within the language of my letter to Mr. Gorham, a copy of a letter1 from him of the 22d instant and of my reply1 of the 30th concerning the statements that the Government of the Argentine Republic has largely increased the duty on cotton oil, thereby unjustly discriminating against an American product in favor of olive oil.

Awaiting your report, I am, etc.,

Richard Olney.
