PORTUGAL. 
Mr. Seward to Mr. Harvey. 
No. 117.]                           DEPARTMENT OF STATE, 
Washingten, June 8, 1863. 
SIR: Your despatch of May 5, No. 225, has been received. The success of 
the internal improvement system which the Portuguese government has adopted
is justly a subject of felicitation. I entertain no doubt that the coniplete
de- 
velopment of it will greatly increase the strength and enhance the prosperity
of Portugal. For a nation to be without iron roads in these times is to be
in 
the world, but not of it. 
I am, sir, your obedient servant, 
WILLIAM    H. SEWARD.
