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

No. 1183

Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of the Department’s instruction of July 30, 1934 (File No. 815.113/494), relative to the embargo on the exportation of arms and munitions of war from the United States to Honduras, the complete text of which was transmitted almost verbatim to the Foreign Office by the Legation, in a note of August 6, 1934.

There has now been received an acknowledgment from the Foreign Office dated August 22, 1934, in which the statements made in the Department’s instruction and transmitted by the Legation concerning the future policy of the United States Government with respect to the embargo are reviewed and it is declared that the Honduran Government has noted these statements and that the Foreign Office extends its thanks in the matter.

Respectfully yours,

Julius G. Lay
