The Vice Consul at Guaymas ( Yepis ) to the Secretary of State

Referring to my despatch No. 507, May 12.22 Several Americans whose properties were provisionally affected by the agrarian petition of Campo Yaqui in the Yaqui Valley received notice in writing today that their properties would be definitely dotated to the agrarians next Sunday 5th instant in accordance with Presidential resolution of January 12, 1938. Americans involved request that strong protest be lodged with the Mexican Government against this action which they consider illegal and unconstitutional and point to the date of the resolution to show that the procedure was carried out in bad faith.

Embassy informed.
