Washington, October 5, 1863. 
SIR: 
We hear as yet nothing from her Catholic Majesty's government concerning
the question of maritime jurisdiction. We are frank, direct, and friendly
in 
our attitude towards Spain. I need not say that we do not fear aggression,
although we deprecate it. 
I am, sir, your obedient servant, 
WILLIAM1 H. SEWARD.

SIa: Your two despatches written from Valencia, one without a number, 
dated August 24, and the other numbered 111, and dated August 27, have been
received. The political information contained in the latter is very interesting.
Your proceedings relative to the occurrence which induced you to repair to
Valencia are approved. 
I am, sir, your obedient servant, 
WILLIAM H. SEWARD.
