A telegram was received from Brother Anthony W. Ivins this morning, stating that four hundred of our people in Mexico had already crossed the border line [due to unrest in Mexico], and that five hundred more were expected tonight, that they were practically destitute.
Brother Francis M. Lyman, Brother Heber J. Grant and Bishop Charles W. Nibley were consulted in regard to this situation. It was decided to send Bishop Orrin P. Miller to El Paso [Texas] tonight to assist Brother Ivins.
