Transcription

March 19, 1909.

Sir:

The Mexican Ambassador informs me that his Government sent the gunboat GENERAL GUERRERO to Saline Cruz to take ammunition and to sail at once thence to Central American waters.

With a view to other arrangements which are to be made immediately, and which they desire to have fit in with those of this Government, the Ambassador inquires first, the name and rank of the Commanding Officer of our ships which the gunboat will meet, and second, the instructions which our Commanding Officer has with reference to the situation in Nicaragua.

I have the honor to request this information in order that I may be able to reply at once to the Ambassador.

I have the honor to be, Sir,

Your obedient servant,

[signature]

Acting Secretary of State

The Honorable,
The Secretary of the Navy.
