Recognition of Diaz Government by United States
In a formal note to Sefior Vallarta, dated April 9, 1878, Mr.
Foster enclosed a copy of Secretary Evants' despatch of March
23, and expressed his own personal satisfaction at the resump-
tion of official relations between the two countries.85 Sefior Val-
larta replied to Mr. Foster's note on April 10, and reciprocated
the sentiments of personal gratification expressed by Mr. Foster."
Thus by this simple interchange of notes was formal recog-
nition accorded the Diaz government by that of the United
States. Immediately after the interchange of notes Mr. Foster
was invited by President Diaz to a banquet at the National Pal-
ace, and the following week President Diaz accepted a dinner
invitation at the American Legation.67 On May 7, 1878, Presi-
dent Hayes formally received Sefior Don Manuel Maria de Zama-
cona as the envoy extraordinary and minister plenipotentiary of
Mexico.68 Such was the last act by which, after a lapse of sev-
enteen and one-half months, official relations were renewed be-
tween the United States and Mexico-relations which were not
to be broken again until the overthrow of Diaz by Madero in 1911.
