[Inclosure 2—Translation.]

File No. 738.3915/55.

The Haitian Secretary for Foreign Relations to the American Minister.

Mr. Minister: On account of the late events which have unsettled the country these last days, it has not been possible for me to reply to your note No. 471, where you state, among other things, that the Government of the United States would be glad to assist in the negotiation of a convention for the arbitration of the frontier question between Haiti and Santo Domingo if the Governments interested would so instruct their ministers at Washington.

Now that peace is reestablished, it is with pleasure that I shall bring to the attention of the Government your communication and will hasten to make known to you that which shall have been decided in this regard.

In the meanwhile, I avail, etc.

Petion P. André.
