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

104. Referring to my telegram No. 103, June 13 [15], 11 a.m., 1932.26

Minister Téllez informs me that General Calles and wife leave here today for the United States via Laredo, destination New York,—whether on regular Laredo train leaving this evening or on a special train this afternoon seems not decided.
Foreign Office states that they are taking up matter through the Mexican Embassy in Washington.
I will telegraph details as soon as I can obtain them, and will likewise advise border.
Recalling the Valls situation at Laredo27 I respectfully urge that a military guard of honor from Fort McIntosh be used to escort General Calles and wife through Texas (see Department’s telegram 541, December 14, 1929).28
