No. 425.1 DEPARTMENT OF STATE, 
   Washington, October 25, .7901. 
 SIR: Referring to the Department's Nos. 470 a and 535,'-' dated, respectively,
July 3, 1896, and February 6, 1897, relative to protection of Chinese subjects
in Nicaragua and Salvador by the representatives of the United States in
thOse countries, I inclose a translation of a notec from the Danish miiiister
at Washington explaining that his Government has no representatives in Salvador,
and asking that under the circumstances the protection of the United States
he extended to Danish subjects and interests in that country. 
 Your efforts are to be confined to the friendly intervention in case of
need for the protection of Danish subjects in their person and property from
unjust and harsh treatment. You are not to hold any representative character
or function as respects the Danish Government and are to act infornially.
Before taking any steps in the matter, however, you should represent to the
Government of Salvador the wish of the Danish Government and the willingness
of your Government to accede thereto, as herein indicated, provided the assent
of the authorities of Salvador is entirely favorable. 
Its decision upon the subject should be reported to the Department. 
I am, etc. 
 JOHN HAY.
