The Secretary of State to the Minister in Guatemala (Whitehouse)

35. For your information and discreet use.

The Department is giving the most careful consideration to all aspects of the situation in connection with the recent revolution in Salvador, but is not yet in a position to determine its course of action in relation to the present regime until the receipt of further reports which it is now awaiting from Salvador.

As soon as the Department has reached a decision it will instruct you to communicate with the government of the country to which you are accredited, since the Department desires to act in harmony in this [Page 193] matter with the signatories of the Treaty of Peace and Amity of 1923.

Repeated to Managua [as No.] 214 and San José [as No.] 41.
