Memorandum by the Secretary of State (Stimson)

During the call of the Guatemalan Minister I asked him about the situation of Guatemala, expressing to him my gratification at the Guatemalan support of the Treaty of 1923. The Minister told me that although the Treaty had been renounced by Costa Rica and Salvador, the other three countries acted to support it, and I said we would support it so long as these Republics did. He then stated that Costa Rica really stood as a nation apart from the others and her action did not make so much difference.
