Mr. Romero to Mr. Gresham.

[Translation.]

Mr. Secretary: I have the honor to inform you that I have received instructions from SeƱor Mariscal, secretary for foreign relations of the United States of Mexico, dated City of Mexico, the 7th instant, to call [Page 430]the attention of the Government of the United States to a letter from Victor L. Ochoa, published in the Citizen, of Albuquerque, N. Mex., of the 6th instant, and dated the 18th of the previous February, which has been reproduced in several newspapers, and among them The Two Republics, of Mexico, as you will see in the inclosed clipping. That letter shows that Ochoa is still intent upon organizing in the United States new expeditions against Mexico, and this, in the opinion of the Government of Mexico, makes it the more urgent that he should be imprisoned and brought to trial.

Accept, etc.,

M. Romero.
