816.00 Revolutions/22½: Telegram

The Secretary of State to the Minister in El Salvador ( Curtis )

60. It appears from your telegrams that the revolution was organized and carried out by younger army officers. You also mention, however, that General Martínez, who is presumably identical with Vice President Martínez, is assisting actively in the movement.

Please report fully by telegraph as to part played in the revolution by the Vice President and by the three designados and whether any of the latter are still in San Salvador, or whether they accompanied President Araujo to Santa Ana.
