Mr. Merry to Mr. Adee.
San José, Costa Rica , September 27, 1899 .
SIR: I have the honor to acknowledge your two communications dated September 18, which reached me on the 25th instant in seven days from Washington. Neither need action on my part.
Your No. 266, dated September 15, has also reached me. In accord with instructions therein, I inclose herewith letter and translation from the acting secretary of foreign affairs of Costa Rica, relating to the international copyright arrangement with the Government of the United States, covering the point indicated in your dispatch No. 266, and which I trust will be found satisfactory.
With assurances, etc.,
United States Minister.
