The Acting Secretary of State to the Minister in Honduras ( Lay )

43. Department’s telegram 41, August 18, 3 p.m. Please inquire of the Honduran Government whether it is prepared to initiate exploratory conversations at an early date. Since this Government is planning to give public notice shortly of the intention to negotiate agreements with other Central American countries it seems appropriate to inquire as a matter of courtesy whether the Honduran Government desires a similar announcement to be made with respect to that country.
