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

Department advised Guatemalan forces have penetrated further into Honduras interfering with construction of Cuyamel Railway.

Inform Minister for Foreign Affairs that Department assumes that it would be safer to retire rather than advance troops so that an amicable arrangement may soon be reached. You may add that a United States warship has been sent to the north coast of Honduras to report upon conditions.
