File No. 812.512/594.

Mr. Walter Anthony to the Secretary of State.

Sir: I own mining properties in the State of Jalisco near Guadalajara. Until now, I have been sending my remittances for the payment of taxes, due each four months, viz: March, July and November, through the Fourth Street National Bank of Philadelphia, who telegraph their correspondent the Bank of London and Mexico at Guadalajara. They now refuse to accept my remittance stating that on account of the conditions in Mexico being much worse than heretofore they have no communication between their correspondent and themselves. The telegraph companies also refuse to telegraph the remittance.

If the taxes are not paid, the properties will revert to the Mexican Government.

Kindly advise what I shall do.

Very truly yours,

Walter Anthony.
