File No. 312.51/118.

The Secretary of State to Special Agent Silliman.


At request French Embassy, urge that steamer Korrigan II, seized in February by Carrancistas from Boleo Company of Santa Rosalía, Lower California, be returned to company, and that orders be issued to prevent threatened seizure steamer Korrigan III from same company. Seizure these two vessels will absolutely isolate French Golony at Santa Rosalía. Consult French Consul as to best way handling.
