812.52 Agrarian Commission/164: Telegram

The Assistant Chief of the Division of the American Republics ( Bursley ) to the American Commissioner, Agrarian Claims Commission ( Lawson )

Reference our telephone conversation this morning. Quintanilla19 informs me that Mexican Ambassador sent telegram no. 250 yesterday to Secretary of President Cárdenas indicating that Serrano apparently still had not received promised instructions. Quintanilla suggested that if this matter was not straightened out by the time you reach Mexico that you communicate with me immediately whereupon on advice from me the Mexican Ambassador would telephone to President Cárdenas.20
