File No. 312.51/115.

Vice Consul Blocker to the Secretary of State.


Referring to my telegram January 31, and despatch 1013, I have agreed to certify invoices of coal mined by Constitutionalists at Rio Escondido mines provided coal is consigned general manager of company, who advised consulate this company has entered into agreement with Constitutionalists whereby Constitutionalists will deliver limited amount of coal from company’s mines to Rio Escondido Company at Eagle Pass, Texas, in lieu of payment to Constitutionalists a normal sum for same. Have seen agreement between both parties and believe they are acting in good faith as agreement does not affect the company’s claim for confiscation of their mines against the Mexican Government.
