The revolution in Sinaloa
On 25 December 1914 the General Jefe of the third Division of the Northwest, R. V. Iturbide, in Mazatlán, acknowledged Carranza’s decree of 27 November but reported that it would cause difficulty for his region, isolated and without resources, to declare the Estado de Chihuahua notes null and void. A handwritten note on the letter notes Carranza’s reply that Iturbide should not allow Villista notes to circulate, or change them for Constitutionalist notes, Carranza showing less determination than he did later with Obregón in Mexico CityCEHM, Fondo XXI, carpeta 23, leg. 2257.
