The Acting Secretary of State to the Chargé in Mexico (Johnson)
Washington, March 25, 1930—6 p.m.
83. Your 62, March 24, 11 a.m. You are authorized to change point 3 as you suggest. I do not think we can expect help from Ambassador Morrow on the El Paso matter. I agree with you that no negotiations should be undertaken until Mr. Lawson is there. Ambassador Morrow will have very little time in Mexico anyway, and it would be foolish to try to use him at all on El Paso. I do not think you will have gotten anywhere in El Paso before Ambassador Morrow has to come away.
