 M~ DEAR MR. BRIJN: in reply to your inquiry the other day, Itake pleasure

to use his good offices in behalf of any Danish subjects for whom they are
desired, assuming, of course~ that the Government of Salvador will make no

Wash~n.gton, October 19, 1901. 
 MR. SECRETARY OF STATE: Referring to the conver~ation that I had the honor
to have with your excellency on the 17th instant and to the personal note
that your excellency did me the honor to write to me yesterday, I hasten
to inform you that the Government of the Kin would be very grateful if the
Government of the United States woul have the kindness to permit the Danish
interests in the Republic of Salvador (Central America) and the Danish subjects
residing in that Republic to be protected, in case of need, by the diplomatic
and consular officers of the United States. 
 As I had the honor to tell your excellency verbally, Denmark has no diplomatic
representative nor consular agent in the Republic of Salvador. Neither the
Danish interests nor Danish subjects are numerous in that country. 
 Among the latter is Mr. Andreas Bang, pharmacist, residing in the city of
Salvador, who, by a petition to my Government, has occasiohed this proposition.
Mr. Bang has had no disagreement with the authorities of Salvador; but, at
the head of a trade of certain importance, he greatly desires to obtain the
protection of the consul of the United States with a view to the possibility
of troubles similar to those which exist in other countries of Central America.
 Your excellency does me the honor to write me that you will be kind enough
to give the necessary orders to this effect if the Government of Salvador
does not oppose it.
