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

39. Department’s telegram number 31, April 13, 6 p.m.10 In view of the apparently exaggerated reports which have been telegraphed by Honduran officials stationed on or near the Nicaraguan border, President Mejia sent the Subsecretary of the Interior some days ago to the frontier districts to investigate and report the facts in the matter. It is possible that this official has conferred with Marine Corps officials, but I was informed at the Foreign Office this morning that no report has yet been received from him.

Please see my despatch number 848 of April 6th.11
