Mr. Uhl to Mr. Romero.

Sir: I have the honor to inclose herewith copy of a letter1 from the Attorney-General touching the subject of your note of the 29th ultimo, in which you requested the prosecution of Victor L. Ochoa for organizing in the United States in 1893 an armed expedition against Mexico.

The Attorney-General calls attention to the fact that your note does not specify in what State or Territories the alleged armed expedition was organized, and he states that if you will furnish him with the evidence to establish the violation of the neutrality laws of the United States, he will at once forward it to the U. S. attorney for the proper district with instructions to immediately institute such proceedings as the evidence will justify.

Accept, etc.,

Edwin F. Uhl,
Acting Secretary.
