File No. 812.00/450.

The Minister for Foreign Affairs to the American Ambassador.


Mr. Ambassador: I have had the honor to receive your excellency’s note of to-day’s date, in which you call my attention to the events which have recently occurred in Guadalajara. In reply, I take pleasure in informing your excellency that the Government profoundly regrets such lamentable happenings, and with a view to preventing a repetition of the disorders has issued all necessary orders, as your excellency was made aware by the note1 which I had the pleasure of sending you this morning, together with copies of various telegrams, among them being one addressed to the governor of the State of Jalisco. That officer replies in terms of which your excellency may take cognizance by consulting the copy of a telegram from him which I have the honor to send you herewith. Notwithstanding this, I have again cautioned the said governor to take all the precautions possible.

I avail [etc.],

Enrique C. Creel.
