The Secretary of State to the Chargé in Mexico (Summerlin)

97. Newspapers publish announcement apparently inspired, under Mexico City date line, that Mexican Government intends to resume interest payments on foreign debt. Date of resumption not stated.

Ascertain if possible, and telegraph whether preferential treatment will be given to coupons longest overdue, or if payments when begun will be applied to taking up coupons currently maturing.
