The Minister in El Salvador ( Curtis ) to the Secretary of State
[Received 9:24 p.m.]
101. President left Santa Tecla for Santa Ana this afternoon apparently under the false impression that the latter was in the hands of his adherents. His closest friends expect him to leave the country entering Guatemala sometime tomorrow. It appears almost certain that there will be no serious fighting. Minister of Finance Espinosa was among those killed last night.
