File No. 7357/289.

Minister Dodge to the Secretary of State.


Minister for foreign affairs of Honduras informs:

When the Secretary of State asked minister of Honduras to secure suspension of cancelling exequaturs, Government of Honduras has issued and published decrees of revocation, and therefore could not grant the request of the Secretary of State, and so advised minister of Honduras, who has not again mentioned the subject, thus allowing it to be understood the affair was closed. Government of Honduras is desirous of finding some means of satisfying desires of Secretary of State, but without affecting national dignity.

Suspension of the decree till their successors have been appointed can be secured probably if desired. Consul of the United States at Tegucigalpa states that their investigation convinced Government of Honduras of the consul’s incorrect action, and public opinion, you might say, forced them to act.
