411.12 Gomez and Rubio/16
The Governor of Oklahoma (Murray) to the Secretary of State
[Received June 10.]
Dear Sir: An incident occurred in this State today which resulted in the death of a relative of the President of the Mexican Republic, [Page 710]together with one of his companions, who were traveling homeward from a Kansas College.
I enclose herewith a copy of a letter I have just now addressed to the Mexican Consul of this city, which contains all of the information in my possession at this time.
Thinking perhaps this information might be needed by your department, I am sending it, and shall gladly report further as the facts may come to me.
- Manuel Gómez was not related to the President of Mexico; Emilio Cortés Rubio and Salvador Cortés Rubio, who were cousins, were nephews of the President (411.12 Gomez and Rubio/138).↩
