[George F. Richards]
Pres. McKay appointed me with Antone R. Ivins to go to Old Mexico to attend a special meeting at which a grevious trouble is hoped to be composed. ...
This Mexican dissention has been as a thorn in the side of the Presidency of the Church for many months. It may be necessary to excommunicate some of the leaders. They will not support the mission President, Harold W. Pratt, and they want a man for President who is of Mexican nationality.
