File No. 312.93/42.

The American Consul at Ciudad Juárez to the Secretary of State.


Your July 17. From Chinese recently at Pearson and Casas Grandes it is learned that about 130 Chinese reside in those towns, and constantly receive severe and cruel treatment from the various factions of the revolution, from bandits and even from local inhabitants. To send these people financial aid at their present abodes would be quite ineffective. I would suggest a contribution to bring to Ciudad Juárez as many as would accept, and a small allowance for subsistence here; say $10 or $12 for transportation and 50 cents daily for subsistence.


Note.—The foregoing was referred to the Red Cross, but apparently no further correspondence on the subject is of record.
