Mr. Finch to Mr. Hay.
Montevideo, Uruguay, October 18, 1904.
Sir: I inclose translation of the message of President Batlle to the Assembly General, dated October 15, 1904, submitting the terms on which peace was negotiated with the revolutionary leaders, together with a brief accompanying explanation.
I also inclose translation of the law which was submitted by the President with his message legalizing the terms and stipulations entered into by the Executive.
The law of interdictions, as it is called, is not repealed, but merely suspended, and there is quite general dissatisfaction expressed in consequence, not among Blancos alone, but conservative Colorados also.
The negotiations and the law appertaining thereto were approved by the Assembly General.
