Mr. Adee to Mr. Bailey.

Sir: I confirm your telegrama of the 18th ultimo.

You will express to the Government of Honduras the grateful appreciation of the Government and people of the United States for its message of sympathy at the death of President McKinley, explaining at the same time that pressure of public business incident to that sad event has prevented an earlier acknowledgment.

I am, etc.,

Alvey A. Adee,
Acting Secretary.
