The Mexican government at once began an investigation of the alleged conspiracy, M but found nothing definite concerning it.85 _ On October 11 Butler left the capital without a passport, taking the northern route, which went through Texas. Acting President Corro called a cabinet meeting to which Ellis was invited. The object of the meeting was to express surprise and regret at Butler's action.
