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


194. Department’s telegram no. 134. Texas Company’s representative furnished me following data on subjects desired:

In deed to Ravise from the Martinez family petroleum rights were specifically mentioned.
The Texas Company did not purchase the land but bought the lease or contract from Ravise. Ravise was to have 5% of the petroleum secured from the land.
Neither Texas Company nor Ravise conduct any operations on land covered by contract.
