Mr. Secretary: I have the honor to inform Your Excellency that the Government of Mexico has seen fit to approve the decisions and recommendations reached by the delegates of Mexico and of the United States at the conferences held in this city for the prevention of cattle diseases. These decisions and recommendations appear in the joint report of August 7 of this year which the delegates submitted to the Governments of Mexico and of the United States of America for their approval.29 I therefore take pleasure in stating to Your Excellency that the Government of Mexico is prepared, in case these decisions and recommendations are also approved by the Government of the United States of America, to appoint a plenipotentiary to conclude and sign the draft convention proposed by the delegates.

Awaiting a statement on this subject from Your Excellency, I take pleasure in renewing [etc.]
