411.12 Gomez and Rubio/8: Telegram

The Ambassador in Mexico (Clark) to the Secretary of State

186. My 185, June 8, 7 p.m.12 Note just received from Foreign Office requests me to transmit message from President Ortiz Rubio to President Hoover in reply to latter’s message. Translation of reply reads as follows:

“I receive with much gratitude the message in which Your Excellency is good enough to express your sorrow for the incident resulting in the death yesterday in Oklahoma of two Mexican students, one of them a relative of mine, and I thank you very much for your kindness in informing me that you have ordered that a minute investigation of this distressing occurrence be made.”
