Minister Thompson to the Secretary of State.


(Mr. Thompson reports that the President says he will join in doing anything our President may desire to do in Salvador matter, and to-morrow will send a telegram to Salvadorean President saying he thinks neutrality should be maintained, putting his telegram in strong terms. He suggests that our President send telegram along same lines. Object in holding his telegram until to-morrow is that both may reach destination about the same time. Mr. Thompson adds that should our President care to suggest any specific action he thinks President Diaz would act on it.)
