 To the President:
 The Secretary of 'State has the honor to submit herewith, with a
 view to its transmission to Congress, certain correspondence for the
 year 1887 in relation to foreign-affairs.
 Since the commencement of the present session of Congress
 sundry reports have.been made by this Department in response
 to resolutions ,of the House of Representatives and of the Senate
 respectively, and also inthe absence of such requests as the pub-
 lic interest has required. The correspondence accompanying the
reports referred to is now before Congress.
  There are, however, other matters of general public interest upon
which special report has not been made, but as to which it would
appear to be desirable that Conngress should be informed, in order
that a connected and comprehensive view may be had of our foreign
relations.
  To this end the accompanying correspondence is respectfully
submitted.
                                               T. V. BAYARD.
