The Minister in Guatemala (Whitehouse) to the Secretary of State
[Received 5:22 p.m.]
78. Have just received text of the telegram of November 15, 2 p.m., to the Department from the Legation at San José. I sent by air mail yesterday [November 14?] a despatch8 relative to the willingness of the Guatemalan Government to convoke, if the Department approves, a conference on the 1923 treaties, but its purpose would be the opposite of the Costa Rican proposal. In view of the above I would appreciate receiving telegraphic instructions after the receipt of my despatch as to the attitude I am to adopt.
