been received and we were highly pleased, as it gave us the news of your well-
being; and all what you had stated was noted by your friend. With regard to
your warning us that we should not bind ourselves to any foreigner whomsoever
by giving any concession connected with the fishing of shells and pearls in the
fisheries on which I possess right, your friend begs to emphasize to Your Honour
that it was not in our mind to grant any concession or agreement in connection
with this matter; and your friend thanks Your Honour for this friendly favour,
for, as Your Honour states, the matter is not useful for our interests. No doubt,
Your friend confides and believes in the goodness of your sincere advice and will
cordially maintain towards you these laudable sentiments.
