File No. 812.00/476.

The Mexican Ambassador to the Secretary of State.


The Government of Mexico hears that bands of rebels are being recruited at various points on the Texas frontier, the following being mentioned as dangerous: Naco, El Paso, Presidio, Boquilla, and Eagle Pass.

The ambassador of Mexico hastens to bring this news to the Department of State so that the American Government, acting in its habitual spirit of justice, may be pleased to order the guarding of its frontier by mobilizing the necessary forces, in order to prevent the gathering of rebels and the importation of arms into Mexico, the passing of armed bands or suspected persons in either direction across the boundary, or commission of other acts that might disturb the domestic peace of Mexico.
