Mr. Romero to Mr. Seward
Mr. Secretary: I have the honor of transmitting to you, for the information of the government of the United States, a copy, for that purpose, of a letter I received to-day from Colonel Don Gregorio Mendez, governor and military commander of the State of Tabasco, in the Mexican republic, dated in the city [Page 96] of San Juan Bautista, the 2d of February last, in which he acknowledges the receipt of the decrees issued by the government of Mexico on the 8th of November last, prolonging the functions of the constitutional President of the republic; states they were very well received in his State, and notifies me they will be solemnly published the next day. I also enclose to you, for the same purpose, the copy of a letter of the same date from the same Colonel Mendez to the constitutional President of Mexico, containing a similar manifestation.
I accept with pleasure this occasion to renew to you, Mr. Secretary, the assurances of my most distinguished consideration.
Hon. William H. Seward, &c., &c., &c.
