File No. 812.00/516.

The Minister for Foreign Affairs to the American Ambassador.

My Dear Mr. Wilson: The President of the Republic has referred to me the matter mentioned in your excellency’s letter of the 18th instant, namely, the exaggerated anti-American articles published by a paper in this city. I have taken steps to suppress such articles, as unjust and unpatriotic, and your excellency has doubtless observed that such articles have ceased to appear in the paper referred to.

I highly appreciate the interest your excellency is taking in keeping the relations between Mexico and the United States as cordial and friendly as ever, and I assure you that such is the feeling of the President, and the spirit of the international policy confided to me.

I avail [etc.],

Enrique C. Creel.
