No. 50

Mr. Chargé d’Affaires: The Government of the United Mexican States, in view of private reports on the personality of Mr. William O. Jenkins, rendered by the authorities of the State of Puebla, finds itself in the painful necessity of stating to you that it is not possible for it to issue to him the Exequatur as Consular Agent of the United States of America in the city of Puebla, as requested by that Embassy in Note number 272, dated March 18, 1918.

I must also inform you that, by direction of the President of the Republic, the provisional authorization issued by the Mexican Government under date of March 12, last year, to Mr. Jenkins, to perform provisionally the duties assigned to him, is no longer in effect.

In view of the foregoing, I take the liberty of returning to you the Commission of the said Mr. Williams O. Jenkins.

Accept [etc.]

H. Medina
