Mr. Romero to Mr. Sherman.

[Translation.]

Mr. Secretary: I have had the honor to receive, with your note No. 231, of to day, the copy which you were kind enough to inclose of the communication which the Commissioner of Indian Affairs sent to the Secretary of the Interior the 10th instant, with regard to the recommendation that I made to the Department of State in my note of the 1st March, for the returning to this country of the Yuma Indians, of the Yuma Reservation, Cal., who have established themselves illegally upon the ranch of Los Algodones, Lower California, the property of Mr. Guillermo Andrade.

I have the honor to inform you that I have forwarded to the Government of Mexico your note and the communication of the Commissioner of Indian Affairs, and I do not doubt it will await the later information which that officer promises to furnish, in order to proceed to act in this case in common accord with the Government of the United States.

Be pleased to accept, etc.,

M. Romero.
