File No. 6775/83

The President of Mexico to President Roosevelt.


Your Excellency’s telegram concerning mediation received. I see with pleasure that it is in entire accord with my own ideas. The minister of Nicaragua conveys to me the desire of his Government that the projected conference take place in Mexico September proximo. For my part, I see no obstacle, provided the other interested governments freely accept. Will Your Excellency be pleased to tell me if you think it appropriate that the desire of Nicaragua be communicated to them simultaneously by Your Excellency and by me?
