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

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.
