FOREIGN RELATIONS.
                               No. 267.
                  Mr. Bayard to Mr. Shu Cheon Pon.
                                     DEPARTMENT OF STATE,
                                     Washington, September 26, 1888.
  SIR: I beg leave to acknowledge your note, dated yesterday, in
which you inform me that although the treaty signed and concluded
at this capital on the 12th of March last, between the United States
and China, seems to meet the views of your Government as to its gen-
eral purpose, yet it causes dissatisfaction to the Chinese people, and
that there are three certain points in the treaty which the Chinese Gov-
ernment regards it necessary should be reconsidered and which by the
instruction of your minister you set forth in your note and bring to my
notice.
  I am much pleased to learn by your note that the minister expected
to sail from Peru to-day for this country, and that we may expect his
return to this capital in the course of three weeks. His presence here
will be assuredly welcomed, and I trust that he will reniew the duties
of his high office in good health, and continue in those relations to this
Department which have always been so cordial and harmonious.
      Accept, sir, etc.,
                                                   T. F. BAYARD.
