                   AFFAIRS OF SALVADOR.
                             No. 962.
                   Mr. Delgado to Mr. Bayard.
              SAN SALVADOR, April 25, 1888. (Received May 14.)
  Mr. MINISTER: I have been instructed by the President of the Re-
public to address your Government, through your excellency, thanking
it in the warmest manner for the friendly intervention of the Hon.
H. C. Hall, envoy extraordinary and minister plenipotentiary of the
United States near the Government of Central America, in the settle-
ment of the question which was pending between my Government and
Italy', it having grown out of a claim of Dr. Francesco Sagrini, an Ital-
ian subject.
  His excellency Mr. Hall on this occasion gave fresh evidence of the
zeal with which he constantly seeks to draw closer the cordial relations
existing between the United States and this Republic, and, owing to hfis
long experience, his perfect knowledge of the customs of these coun-
tries, his well-known ability as a diplomatist, and the authoritative po.
sition which he occupies on account of being the dean of the diplomat ic
corps accredited in Central America,, greatly contributed to the final
and satisfactory settlement of this extremely delicate question, which
seemed likely to be followed by serious and unpleasant consequences.
  Renewing to your Government, in the name of my own, the assurances
of its gratitude for having instructed Mr. Hall to lend us his valuable
co.operation in the settlement above mentioned, I take pleasure in reit-
erating to your excellency, etc.,         MANUEL DELGADO.
