Mr. Romero to Mr. Gresham.
Washington, July 9, 1894. (Received July 9.)
Mr. Secretary: I have the honor to forward to you, with reference to my note of the 2d instant, in regard to marking the boundary line on the bridges over the River Bravo between Paso del Norte, Mexico, and El Paso, Tex., a copy of a communication that Señor Mariscal, secretary of foreign relations of the Mexican United States, addressed on the 29th June last to Señor Don Francisco Javier Osorno, Mexican commissioner on the Mexican and United States International Boundary Commission, which contains the grounds of the disapproval by the Government of Mexico of the provisional designation by both commissioners of the boundary line on those bridges.
As this communication fully states these grounds, which to me appear unanswerable and which determined the Government of Mexico to adopt the decision stated, I do not think it necessary to say more on this subject.
