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

12. Department’s telegram 6, January 17, 4 p.m. has been communicated to the Provisional President who has decided that for considerations of economy he prefers to purchase the bulk of the arms from the Government of the United States rather than from private companies. He intimated that delivery can be obtained from the United States Government within a month.

The Provisional President has received telegram from Monico Zelaya, acting consul, New York City, stating that the customhouse authorities there were ignorant of lifting of the embargo. I advised the Provisional President to inform his agents in the United States of the Department’s telegram above mentioned.
