The President of Honduras to the President of the United States.


The Government is resolved to approve convention and loan. To that end, it is necessary that hostilities be suspended to avoid useless bloodshed. If Your Excellency can lend your valuable intervention for the purpose of terminating the war, the people and Government of Honduras will have cause to be grateful once more to the United States and its worthy Chief Magistrate for the great interest they take in the tranquility and prosperity of this country.

I am, etc.,

Miguel R. Dávila.
