The Minister of Salvador to the Secretary of State
Washington, March 30, 1917.
Mr. Secretary: Acting under instructions from my Government, I have the honor to enclose herewith, for your excellency’s information, translations of telegrams that have just passed between the Foreign Offices of Nicaragua and El Salvador bearing date the 9th2 and 16th instant, respectively, and relating to Nicaragua’s denouncement of the convention for the establishment of a Central American Court of Justice, concluded at Washington on the 20th of December, 1907.
I beg leave, also, to bring to the attention of your excellency’s Government the attached memorandum containing a brief expression of the views of the Government and people of El Salvador respecting that momentous act on the part of her sister Republic, and would be grateful if your excellency would be good enough to give some expression of the views of your Government as, in a way, one of the moral guarantors of the denounced convention.
With renewed assurances [etc.]
