Excerpt from Commerce Between the United States and Mexico: A Report in Reply to a Resolution of the House of Representatives of January 31, 1884

The United States and Mexico, although territorially contiguous, have heretofore been in a commercial sense widely separated, from the fact that an intervening belt of more than one thousand miles in width, without transportation facilities has separated the centers of commerce and industry of the two countries. But within the last three years enterprises have been inaugurated and pushed forward, whereby the United States and Mexico will soon be placed in close communication by means of that most forceful agency of modern enterprise, the railroad. The advent of this important change in the commercial relations of the two countries is at hand. In a few weeks the first of the trunk lines designed to connect the two countries will be opened for traffic, and it is probable that within two years from the present time, three or four other lines with their branches will have been so far advanced toward completion as to place all the more important towns and cities of Mexico in immediate communication with the commercial centers of the United States. Soon the awakening influence of the new and grand possibilities thus opened for commercial intercourse will be felt in both countries.

This recent development in the commercial history of the two contiguous countries has been largely due to the broad ami liberal policy of internal improvements, which has been adopted and steadily adhered to during the last ten years by the Government of Mexico, viz, the granting to railroad corporations of this country valuable franchises and liberal subsidies in aid of railroad construction in that country. These acts bespeak the present attitude and disposition of the people of Mexico toward the people of the United States. From one end of that country to the other the expectation as to the prosperity which will follow the completion of the railroads now in progress is the absorbing thought of the hour. The new life into which Mexico is now entering has already visibly manifested itself in the growth of commerce, in an increase of her revenues, in the appreciation of the value of property along the lines of the railroads in progress, and in an increase of wages, the surest sign of awakened enterprise. The new-born hopes and aspirations of the Mexicans, and their manifest desire and efforts for the cultivation of more intimate commercial relations with the United States, highly commend them to the generous co-operation of the people of this country.

It is a subject for rejoicing at the present time that the cause of political disturbance in Mexico during the last sixty years has been removed, and that the principles of civil and religious liberty have been established in that country. The rights of person and property are also recognized and protected, and the way appears to be fully prepared for the safe prosecution of commercial enterprise. In view of these facts, it is believed that the present time constitutes the most important epoch in the history of Mexico since she yielded to the sway of the Spanish conqueror in 1521.
