Mr. Uhl to Mr. Romero.

Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your note of this day’s date, giving the present whereabouts of Victor L. Ochoa, who, you state, has left Texas to escape prosecution for a violation of the neutrality laws of the United States in organizing an armed force for the invasion of Mexico.

A translation of your note has been furnished to the Attorney-General for his information.

In this relation I have the honor to inform you that the evidence submitted with your note of the 14th ultimo has been forwarded to the U. S. attorney for the western district of Texas, with instructions to present the same to the grand jury for indictment.

Accept, etc.,

Edwin F. Uhl,
Acting Secretary.
