File No. 763.72/3807

The Salvadoran Minister ( Zaldivar ) to the Secretary of State

Mr. Secretary: I take pleasure in repeating to your excellency, the following cablegram which was received on yesterday at this Legation.

American Legation to-day communicated that state of war exists with Germany. Inform Secretary of State that El Salvador will maintain her neutrality, which fact, however, does not prevent Salvadoran Government from presenting, at same time, its sympathy and good wishes towards the people and Government of the United States.

With assurances [etc.]

R. Zaldivar
