The Secretary of State to President Wilson

The suggestion as to engaging a person to keep in touch with representatives of Mexican factions here seems to me very wise and Mr. Fuller to be the best fitted. I will, if you desire, ask him to come and see me, although I think a communication from you would be more effective in view of the fact that he would be your personal agent in the matter. I assume from your note of the 7th that you had not then received my letter suggesting a course of action in Mexico. I have seen the six diplomats who are communicating with their governments in regard to informal conversations. They all seemed to be personally gratified at the proposed identical action and believed that their governments would readily authorize them to confer.
