Received 5.55 p.m. August 19, 1906.
I am leaving Buenos Aires this afternoon, after a most hospitable and friendly reception and entertainment. Owing to the terrible calamity in Chile I have advised Chilean Government that I will, with their permission, limit my visit to a simple call of condolence. I have expressed sympathy in personal call at Chilean legation here by telegraph.
