The Secretary of State to the Minister in Salvador (Schuyler)

28. Your August 30, midnight.

In view of the unsatisfactory results of the conference held at Amapala last year,6 the Department doubts whether difficulties between Salvador, Honduras, and Nicaragua are of such a nature that they could be satisfactorily dealt with in the manner you propose. Any measure which might help to bring about a better understanding between the Governments of the three Republics would be viewed with pleasure, but it is believed that it might be preferable to await the result of the meetings of the Constituent Assembly in Tegucigalpa7 before considering any action with a view to readjusting the relations of the Republics with one another.
