Chargé Lorillard to the Secretary of State.

No. 54.]

Sir: I have the honor to inform the Department that a general treaty of arbitration between Denmark and Spain was signed at Madrid on the 1st instant.

The text of this treaty has not yet been made public. The minister of foreign affairs was kind enough to tell me, however, that it is identical with that of the Anglo-Danish, reported in my dispatch No. 46, of the 25th ultimo, the Anglo-French, and the Anglo-Italian arbitration treaties.

I have, etc.,

George L. Lorillard.
