The Secretary of State to the Minister in Honduras (Lay)

27. Legation’s 66, April 22, 11 a.m. and 67, April 22, 1 p.m. The Department perceives no objection to your informal acquiescence in [Page 564]the arrangement between the Company and the Government described in the Company’s telegram to Turnbull. This it is believed should satisfy the urgent needs of the Government.

Request that any restrictions not essential to immediate military needs placed upon the Company’s railroads and other property be removed and state that it is expected that adequate compensation shall be paid for such use as may be made of the property of American nationals and for any damage resulting therefrom.
