The Mexican Chargé d’Affaires to the Secretary of State.

No. 414.]

Your Excellency: In compliance with instructions which I have received from my Government, I have the honor to appeal to your excellency’s kind offices to the end that in every future case of exportation of explosives to Mexico the proper authorities may make this known to the Mexican Government in order that the War Department may state whether or not there is objection to such exportations.

Not doubting that your excellency will see fit to favor this request owing to its significance in the prompt restoration of complete peace in Mexico, I take pleasure in thanking you sincerely in advance [etc.]

Arturo de la Cueva.
