The Chief of the Honduran Special Mission (Bonilla) to the Secretary of State


Most Excellent Sir: I have the honor to inform Your Excellency that the resignation of the office of Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary of Honduras on Special Mission at Washington, which I tendered, has been accepted by my Government, and in compliance with its instructions I lay before the Department of State the notice that my retirement does not mean that my Government considers at an end the mediation in the boundary dispute of [Page 232] Honduras with Guatemala and Nicaragua,32 as the Mission which I have filled is left in charge of the permanent Legation at this capital which will, when the time comes, receive notice of the solution that the mediator may see fit to propose in the Nicaragua case.

In retiring from the diplomatic service of my country, it affords me pleasure to express my thanks to the officers of the Department of State for the attentions and courtesies which they have shown me.

Assuring [etc.]

P. Bonilla
