File No. 812.00/14397.
The Confidential Agent of the Constitutional Government of Mexico to the Secretary of State.
My Dear Mr. Bryan: I have the honor to transmit to you, herewith, copy in translation of a circular letter issued by Mr. Carranza to all military commanders of the Constitutionalist Army, which has for a purpose to preserve perfect unity in all the acts of our government in its relations with foreign representatives now in Mexico.
By having all matters brought directly to the attention of the First Chief, who, on account of the fact that he is the depositary of the Executive Power of Mexico, is really the only person with whom diplomats and consuls can deal, many misunderstandings and deficiencies will be averted.
With assurances [etc.]
