The Minister in Honduras ( Summerlin ) to the Secretary of State

3. The Minister for Foreign Affairs states that the Government of Honduras is in entire accord with the Department in regard to the strict observance of the General Treaty of Peace and Amity of 1923 and that its representative at Managua has been instructed by telegraph to make representations as indicated in the Department’s urgent circular telegram of January 7, 7 p.m., but not to make public this declaration at the present time.

On account of menacing revolutionary movements from Salvador and Guatemala it appears that the authorities of Honduras are most anxious to avoid any act which might [tend] to alienate Nicaraguan sympathy and support.

Repeated to Managua.
