Historical materials pertaining to the history of the United States contained in foreign archives.
This preliminary report about the materials pertaining to the United States located in the Mexican archives was based upon what was actually found, prepared wholly for utilitarian purposes, and not a definitive treatise on the Mexican archives. It should be regarded as a compilation of notes, taken by one primarily interested in knowing and recording the whereabouts and nature of materials for United States history, and put in the most convenient form consonant with that purpose. There was included in the report, necessarily, many references to characters and events of Mexican history proper, especially those which have had close connection with the Interior Provinces, and to national movements which have affected in an important way these provinces or international relations. As a means of encouraging work by Americans in the Mexican archives, it was deemed wise to make it as useful as possible to English readers.
