The Minister in Honduras (Summerlin) to the Secretary of State
[Received April 2—1:21 a.m.]
30. I have received note dated today from the Foreign Office, signed by the Subsecretary:
“Following instructions of His Excellency the President of the Republic, I have the honor to inform Your Excellency that my Government has learned, from private sources, that the North American military forces in Nicaragua wish to provoke a conflict with Honduras.
My Government will be grateful to Your Excellency if you will investigate this matter.
Awaiting, et cetera.”
I had a conference this afternoon with the President of the Republic just before this note was received and he did not mention this matter.
Repeated to Managua.
