The Chargé in Honduras (Higgins) to the Secretary of State

190. Reference first paragraph my telegram No. 188 of December 6 [7], noon, Minister of Foreign Affairs has twice again requested me to ascertain as soon as possible if Department will recognize present government in Salvador. He is impatient for early information as his Government’s action will be in conformity with that of the United States and he is being strongly pressed to announce his Government’s decision.
