Mr. Romero to Mr. Sherman.


Mr. Secretary: I have had the honor to receive your note, No. 255, dated yesterday, with which you were pleased to accompany copy of the information which the Acting Commissioner of Indian Affairs directed to the Secretary of the Interior the 12th instant, respecting the incident of the Yuma Indians who have illegally occupied the lands of the ranch Algodones, and whose removal the Mexican Government asked.

I have the honor to inform you in reply that I already transmitted to my Government your note and the information attached thereto, in order that in view of the considerations expressed in both documents it may determine what may seem convenient.

Be pleased to accept, etc.,

M. Romero.
