The Chargé in Guatemala (Thurston) to the Secretary of State

Your December 28, 12 noon [10 a.m.]91 Yesterday afternoon presented to President Cabrera the information that Honduranean Government had accepted neutral zone and that Honduranean troops would be withdrawn therefrom upon Guatemala withdrawing hers, and outlined to him the extent of the mutual withdrawal. President accepted immediately. He informs me his withdrawal can be accomplished by January 6, but I do not believe the present conditions will permit such a movement. Will keep Department informed.
