Pani replies that General Obregón is absolutely ignorant of the source of the draft, that neither he nor Pani had any knowledge of it until I submitted a copy to Pani and that the Executive has not yet submitted to Chamber of Deputies any project relative to the matter in reference. Pani adds, “Moreover, the President charges me to inform you that the dignity and the sovereignty of the Nation preclude absolutely that he accept that the laws which are within the exclusive jurisdiction of the Federal legislative power receive previous censorship by governments of other countries”.
