File No. 701.5212/6.

The Brazilian Minister to Mexico to the Secretary of State.


312. Your 436, February 4. As far as I was informed by the Spanish Minister, he received an intimation from Carranza transmitted by Obregon, to surrender the person within 24 hours.

Spanish Minister protested in truth that the person mentioned was not concealed in his Legation and so far nothing has happened. Spanish Minister has further informed me that he has personally received no threat of deportation. Under the circumstances everything possible to help matters, including Silliman who has interposed his good offices to that effect.
