The Chargé in Honduras ( Spencer ) to the Secretary of State

113. Department’s telegram 30, August 23rd, 6 p.m. Investigations tend to prove following facts.

A small expedition mostly of Nicaraguan outlaws from Salvador landed at Tempisque, Nicaragua, led by Jiménez and Peralta, Nicaraguans who have never been in the employment of the Honduranean Government.

The general opinion is that the Salvadorean Government is backing the expedition with the assistance of Honduranean emigrados with a view to blocking the progress of the Union.

Honduranean Government is in telegraphic communication with the Nicaraguan Government doing the utmost to prevent the entrance of this invading force into Honduranean territory.
