The Chargé in El Salvador ( McCafferty ) to the Secretary of State

21. At Legation’s suggestion destroyers Wickes and Philip came to La Libertad today and the commander is now in San Salvador. There has been a noticeable improvement in the situation. The government forces have retaken Juayua, Izalco and the other towns which were in the hands of the Communists.
