The Consul at Nogales ( Dyer ) to the Secretary of State

I have received from Governor de la Huerta a communication announcing his early departure for Mexico City to reorganize the Government and asking me to inform you that the de facto Government and all of the civil and military authorities under it have given full guaranties to both nationals and foreigners and that his Government will continue that policy giving the fullest security to capital invested in Mexico in conformity with the laws; that the Government is now favorably disposed to promote relations with the United States in conformity with the usages internation[al] law and on a basis of absolute justice, equity and good faith.

The original communication is being forwarded to the Department today. I may say that this Government has thus far shown the best of good faith and that my past experience with the Government of Sonora has given me little cause for criticism.
