The Consul at Ciudad Juarez ( Dow ) to the Acting Secretary of State

Unofficial reports indicate about 225 Villistas were killed in or near Juarez June 15 and 16. American troops killed about 100. They brought to United States 100 horses of bandits. Remaining 125 Villistas killed by Mexican troops under General Francisco Gonzales. Have today urged latter to send immediately troops to Casas Grandes. This place should have at least 500 men to protect 500 Americans in that vicinity. Juarez quiet today and no important ill feeling against the Americans on part of Mexican people there. Embassy advised.
