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

119. In the course of a conversation with the President yesterday I informed him of the interest of President Roosevelt and the American Government in the Mexican religious situation. He stated that his administration was primarily interested in economical and educational matters and in regard to religion that it intended to observe the religious laws. He did not indicate that he contemplated making any statement regarding religious policy but said that he had heard that several states might adopt a more moderate attitude.
