Sir: Referring to your No. 2061, of April 13, 1926, in regard to the proposed conference between representatives of the Department of Agriculture and the Mexican Department of Agriculture and Fomento in relation to certain problems of the livestock industry, I enclose a copy of a letter from the Acting Secretary of Agriculture,25 stating that, if this matter can be presented to the appropriate officials of the Mexican Government and they are favorable to the plan, he will be glad to name three representatives of the Bureau of Animal Industry to confer with a like number of delegates of the livestock sanitary branch of the Mexican Department of Agriculture and Fomento.

You are requested to bring the matter to the attention of the Mexican Government.

I am [etc.]

For the Secretary of State:
