                                            GUATEMALA, September 19, 1887.
  With reference to the affairs of Sagrini, the United States minister at
Paris says to
the honorable Secretary of State, who concurs with him, that in his opinion
the Gov-
ernment of Salvador should authorize itb minister there to offer a reasonable
sum to
settle the claim, and in case of its non-acceptance by the Italian Government
then the
good offices of the Government of the United States might be offered.
                                                        HENRY C. HALL.

                         Seuor Delgado to Mr. Hall.
                                         SAN SALVADOR, September 20, 1887.
  I received your telegram last night, and after thanking you I have to say
that my
Government could not authorize its minister at Paris to offer Sagrini (the
a specific sum, because the account has not been adjusted.
  My Government thinks that what ought first to be done is to proceed with
the ad-
justment of the account by mutual agreement or through the medium of arbitrators.
In this sense it has given instructions to its representative at Paris.
     With assurances, etc.,
                                                      MANUEL DELGADO.

No. 712.]               LEGATION OF THE UNITED STATES
                                 G lIN CENTRAL AMERICA,
              Guatemala, September 28, 1887. (Received October 14.)
  SIR: With reference to my dispatch No. 699, and to other correspond-
ence relating to the recent boundary treaty between Nicaragua and
Costa Rica, I have the honor to transcribe the following translation of
a telegram of this date, received this evening from Presidend Carazo, of
Nicaragua: "Congress rejected convention; arbitration remains."
  Which means that the Nicaraguan Congress having rejected the treaty
of the 26th July last with Costa Rica, the two Governments must now
fall back on the convention signed in Guatemala on the 24th of Decem-
ber, 1886, which provides for the arbitration of the President of the
United States of the question as to the validity of the treaty of April
15, 1858.
       I have, etc.,
                                                    HENRY C. HALL.
                                 No. 68.
                        Mr. Bayard to Mr. Hall.
