The Ambassador in Mexico (Daniels) to the Secretary of State
[Received February 12.]
Sir: I have the honor to refer to the Department’s telegram No. 23 of February 4, 8 p.m. instructing me that the informal discussion of agrarian claims filed with the General Claims Commission as provided for in the Protocol of April 24, 1934 must be terminated as of February first.
In accordance with this instruction, a letter was today handed to Mr. Sierra, a copy of which is enclosed herewith. Mr. Sierra intimated that he had expected the American Government to terminate the informal discussions as of February first from our Memorandum handed to him on January 21 and added that he did not consider that the termination of the negotiations would have an important bearing on the question of agrarian claims.
