The Minister in Costa Rica (Sack) to the Secretary of State
[Received 8 p.m.]
6. Regarding several telegrams from Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua concerning proposed Central American conference and agenda therefor. This Government is being wholly ignored and I fear if agenda completed by three countries and then submitted to Costa Rica on a take it or leave it basis that Government and public [Page 427]sentiment will resent such action and a hostility to conference will result which may prove harmful insofar as Costa Rican participation is concerned.
During conference with Foreign Minister Pacheco today on another matter I gathered this country will be extremely wary in extent of union with other countries as outlined by Skinner-Klee to Lawton, January 27th.8 Respectfully suggest for future good will that before agenda announced Costa Rican pride and historical background be considered.
Repeated to Central American missions.
