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

Your proceedings relative to the occurrence which induced you to repair to

Valencia are approved. 
I am, sir, your obedient servant,
