The British Ambassador (Howard) to the Under Secretary of State (Olds)

My Dear Colonel Olds: Very many thanks for your letter of December 12th, notifying me of the negotiations now in progress at New York between Mr. R. D. Hutchinson, Manager of the Aguila Company and representative of the Mexican Estates Company in Mexico, and Mr. Frank Feuille, attorney in New York for the Richmond Petroleum Company, relative to the latter’s application for concessions covering lands in Mexico in which the Mexican Estates Company owns a part interest. It would be most kind of you if you would inform me in due course of the result of these negotiations.

Very sincerely yours,

Esme Howard
