File No. 312.11/6919.

The Secretary of the Navy to the Secretary of State.

Sir: I have the honor to quote for your information the following telegram which has been received from the Commander-in-chief of the Pacific Fleet:

[Quotes telegram M–3079 of November 13, above.]

The Commander-in-chief will not be permitted to land forces at Guaymas for the protection of property in the Yaqui Valley, and it is therefore suggested that every possible effort be made to obtain from the Mexican authorities adequate protection for American settlers in the Yaqui Valley.

Sincerely yours,

Josephus Daniels.
