File No. 812.00/14331.

The Confidential Agent of the Constitutionalist Government of Mexico to the Secretary of State.

My dear Mr. Bryan: I beg to inform your excellency that I have just received advice from General Plutarco Elias Calles, Military Commander of the Constitutionalist Forces at Agua Prieta, Sonora, that Maytorena, flagrantly infringing the agreement entered into to neutralize the town of Naco, Sonora, has occupied this frontier port with his troops.

I have the honor to bring this to your excellency’s attention to the end that you may take cognizance of the inconsistency and lack of seriousness of the pacts of the Villa faction in contrast with the behaviour of General Calles, who, honestly observing the agreement, evacuated Naco moving his troops to Agua Prieta, where he is still residing.

With the assurance [etc.]

E. Arredondo.
