The Minister in Guatemala ( Hanna ) to the Secretary of State

33. Costa Rica delegation called on me today and inquired whether the Government of the United States would give material assistance towards the construction of the Central American highway. Dr. Beeche said he had instructions to present the subject of the highway to the Conference. I discussed the matter with them in the sense set forth in my telegram No. 30, March 19, 6 p.m. Both delegates said that they considered the furtherance of the highway project to be one of the most useful things that the Conference could accomplish.

Repeated to Central American missions.
