Minister Beaupré to the Secretary of State.

No. 136.]

Sir: I have the honor to report that the relations between this country and the neighboring Republic of Uruguay, which have long been very strained, have again been restored to their normal condition of good understanding by the cooperation of the foreign offices in the two countries. It is now expected that Uruguay will promptly send a diplomatic representative to this capital to succeed Dr. Daniel Muñoz, recently transferred to London, and the Argentine minister, Señor Alejandro Guesalaga, recently appointed from Asuncion to Montevideo, but detained in the former city by the state of affairs in the Republic of Paraguay, will proceed without delay to his new post. The interrupted representation of the two countries will then have been resumed and the rupture and bad feelings of the past months will, it is hoped, soon be forgotten

I am, etc.,

A. M. Beaupré.
