It is further my duty to inform your excellency that, at the request of all the foreign representatives invited to the conference, who are to attend the wedding of Her Royal Highness Infanta Doña Maria Teresa and Prince Ferdinand of Bavaria, the meeting of the conference has been postponed until the 16th of January next.
