"Owing to the large area involved in this paper it is proposed to give only briefly the history, geology and development of the oil industry in Mexico, as well as to discuss in a general way the present oil legislation which has brought so much comment in the papers and has raised to much diplomatic trouble between the Mexican and United States Governments. This discussion is therefore of a brief nature and only the most culminant features and details of the subject in mind are here treated. The information and data here given were accumulated during personal examination of the oil fields from Matamoros and Reynosa in the north to Teziutlan in the State of Puebla in the south; also from a thorough study of the records and reports to date kept by some of the largest companies operating in Mexico"--Introduction, page 1.
