The Mexican Embassy to the Department of State.

No. 427.]

The Embassy of Mexico has the pleasure of presenting its compliments to the Department of State and the honor to inform it, under telegraphic instructions from the Ministry of Foreign Relations, that the Government of Mexico, hearing that the Pearson firm proposes to establish industrial plants on a lot in the Chamizal zone, hastens to bring the matter to the attention of the American Government, having no doubt that it will, with its customary sense of justice, intervene to maintain the status quo now existing in the zone until the international boundary line ordered by the award of the Arbitration Tribunal2 that decided the case shall have been established.
