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

380. From the Under Secretary. Your 406, December 6, noon. We shall be very much interested to learn of the decisions of the Mexican Government in this matter.

This Government would have no objection to mention in the announcement of the place of first meeting. As to what that place might be, we are entirely willing to give immediate and sympathetic consideration to any views the Mexican Government may have on the subject. The first meeting of the Canadian-American Commission was held in Ottawa, the second in Washington, and subsequent meetings were in several places in the east and west of the two countries; the next meeting will be in New York City. [Welles.]
