File No. 312.11/7211

Collector Cobb to the Secretary of State


My January 14, 11 a.m. Train reached Juarez and passed without delay to this side about 8 o’clock, bringing fifty-two Americans.

The passengers included American employees at Chihuahua of Smelting Company and Potosi Company, excepting Wm. J. Quigly, who remained to gather other Americans and bring them out as the Baskin [?] train returns from Parral. It is supposed to have reached Parral to-night and should get hack to Chihuahua Sunday morning. This will give time for the remaining Americans there to get ready.
