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

No. 4171

Sir: I have the honor to report that Count Montgelas, the German Minister Designate, called at the Foreign Office this morning to arrange for the presentation of his credentials. Count Montgelas stated to one of my colleagues that after having heard that a new Spanish Minister was en route to this post he so advised his Government and requested, if this report could be confirmed at Madrid, that he be instructed to recognize the Obregon Government.

George T. Summerlin
