Mr. Romero to Mr. Gresham.


Mr. Secretary: I have the honor to inform you that I have received, by cable, information from my Government that the band commanded by Victor L. Ochoa, which has been marauding on the border of the State of Chihuahua, is about to take refuge in the United States in the direction of Silver City, N. Mex., or of San Vicente, and for this reason the Government of Mexico has instructed me to forward this intelligence to the Government of the United States, in order that, should it deem proper, it may please give orders to the end that those individuals may be captured in crossing to this country.

Accept, etc.,

M. Romero.
