File No. 701.5212/32.

The Spanish Ambassador to the Secretary of State.

[Telegram.]

My Dear Mr. Secretary: In the note which I addressed to you on February 6 last, on the subject of the attempt to arrest Sr. Angel del Caso by order of General Carranza, I stated inadvertently that Sr. del Caso was the Confidential Agent of the Spanish Government to [Page 1055]General Villa; but I have subsequently been informed by my colleague the Spanish Minister to Mexico, that Sr. del Caso’s appointment of Confidential Agent of the Spanish Government was to the President elected by the Convention of Aguascalientes.

Please take note of this information and believe me [etc.]

Juan Riaño.
