The Governor of Oklahoma (Murray) to the Secretary of State

In addition to matters and things reported yesterday in re the killing of the two Mexican citizens I have directed the payment of the transportation of the bodies to Mexico City. Have advised the people [Page 713]of Ardmore to pass appropriate resolutions of regret by the City Council, the County Government and Chamber of Commerce and that a large concourse of citizens follow the remains to the train when shipment is made this afternoon. Have done all the things that I could think of to alleviate the strained relations that exist between our [country?] and our neighboring Republic. I await your orders if other matters are needed. Have wired the American Minister [Ambassador] Mexico City place and time of crossing the international border.

Wm. H. Murray
