"4. The Government of the Dominican Republic shall furnish regu- larly one copy of each of the publications enumerated in the attached list headed "List 2".[ 9] .This list shall be extended to include, without the necessity of subsequent negotiation, any important publications that may be issued by any instrumentalities of the Government in the future. "5. With respect to instrumentalities which at this time do not issue publications and which are not mentioned in the attached lists, it is understood that important publications which they may issue in the future shall be furnished in one copy. "6. Neither Government shall be obligated by this agreement to furnish confidential publications, blank forms, or circular letters not of a public nature. "7. Each party to the agreement shall bear the postal charges, land and maritime, and other chhrges arising in its own country. "8. This agreement shall not modify the already existing exchange agreements between the various Government instrumentalities of the two countries. "Upon the receipt of an identical note from Your Excellency my Government will consider the present agreement in force. "I avail myself of the opportunity to renew to Your Excellency the assurances of my highest and most distinguished consideration." I have the honor likewise to inform Your Excellency that the Dominican Government accepts the foregoing provisions for the conclusion of the said agreement, which it considers concluded by the exchange of Your Excellency's above-mentioned note of the 9th instant and this note of reply. The Dominican Government deems it well to explain that for the reason that due to present difficulties many publications which were formerly issued regularly have been discontinued, this agreement will be carried out on its part so far as its possibilities permit under the difficulties to which reference has been made. I avail myself of this opportunity to renew to Your Excellency the assurances of my most distinguished consideration. A. DESPRADEL His Excellency EDWARD P. LAWTON, Charge d'Affaires ad interim of the United States of America, His Legation. 8 [For list furnished by the Government of the United States of America, see p. 1856 .] ' [See p. 1857.] 1855
