The Mexican Ambassador (Bonillas) to the Acting Secretary of State


Excellency: I have the honor to inform Your Excellency that I have received instructions from my Government to acquaint Your Excellency’s Government with the following declaration:

“The Mexican Government has learned that the recognition of the Monroe Doctrine has been under discussion in the conferences at Paris. The Mexican Government has not recognized nor will it recognize that doctrine, nor any other which attacks the sovereignty and independence of Mexico.”

I avail myself [etc.]

Y. Bonillas
