The Salvadoran Chargé (Leiva) to the Secretary of State


Mr. Secretary: I have had the honor to receive Your Excellency’s kind note in which you are good enough to show your sympathy in connection with the attack of which I was the victim on the 13th of this month, and express your desire that those guilty of the criminal act—breaking into the Legation and attacking the undersigned with a weapon—may soon be caught and brought to justice.

Permit me, Excellency, to express to you in return my deep gratitude for the note to which I am replying, and the fine courtesy towards myself which inspired it.

I beg [etc.]

C. Leiva
