Chargé Snyder to the Secretary of State.

No. 78.]

Sir: Referring to my telegram of July 11, 1905, regarding the decree of the Colombian Government refusing to further receive” the vales de extranjeros in the custom-houses of the Republic, I have the honor to inform you that owing to the representations of this and the other interested legations said decree, in as far as it concerned the payment of vales and railroad exemption bonds, was revoked on the 26th of July by resolution No. 27 of the ministry of hacienda.

The matter, therefore, remains satisfactorily adjusted.

I am, etc.,

Alban G. Snyder.
