The Convention continues its sessions. The first two articles of the proposed plan of government were adopted. A manifesto was issued calling on the Mexican nation to support the Convention. General Villa was confirmed as Commander in Chief and was given a complimentary vote of confidence. The late Provisional President was given three days to return something over ten millions of public funds taken with him and was promised guaranties if he would make delivery within the limit; otherwise the law would be applied to him if caught.
