Auunt, July 1 It was stated here
to.day on authority that the ordering of
the Twenty-third lteglincnt of llrooklyn
to the Mexican border Instead of the
Slxty-nlnth of Manhattan, does not mean
t(iat te Sixty-ninth will not go. Ilellef
was cxpreMcd that all of New York's
Infantry regiment would eventually get
to the border, even though I'resldcnt
Wilson's call Is now for only nine of
the thirteen regiments.
The reason for sending the Twenty
third lnstend of the Sixty-ninth was
ttated authoritatively ns being simply
a case of the location of the regiments.
