July 15, 1887.
Mr. Cayetano Romero, Mexican chargé, called in response to a letter sent him this morning in regard to the coup d’état in Guatemala. I gave him a paraphrase of the telegram from Mr. Hall. He said he did not think there was any ground for this report. I said I honed not, [Page 882] and felt very sure that Mr. Mariscal would simply action a manner to protect his own people, without invading an adjoining territory.
He promised to let me hear from him as soon as he could get a reply from his Government.
