Mr. Bomero to Mr. Bayard.
Washington, April 11, 1887. (Received April 11.)
Mr. secretary: Referring to my notes of the 26th March last ahd of the 5th instant, and to your reply of the 8th instant, relative to the occurrence at the ranch of Don Fernando Ortiz, a Mexican citizen and director of the revenue of stamps and mails at San Fernando, near Sasabe, I have the honor to inclose to you, for the purpose mentioned in my two aforesaid notes, a copy of a statement which Ortiz addressed to the governor of the State of Sonora on the 2d instant, from which it appears that on the 30th of last March he was arrested by the marshal of Tucson, and that on the 1st of the present month he was made to appear before the court, which postponed his case to the 11th instant, exacting a bail of $1,000 to enable him to remain at liberty.
Be pleased, etc.,
