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

51. Department’s telegram No. 43, September 26, 7 p.m. Referring to paragraph 2, I have not yet received Honduran views regarding [Page 750] final text. Referring to paragraphs 3 and 4, these will be dealt with opportunely. Referring to paragraph 5, the Department is correct in the assumption that signed agreement must be submitted to Honduran Congress for ratification. Session begins January 1, 1936. I am sending by air mail copy of decree nullifying [No. ?] 14 dated September 26th, 1935, naming Flores Fiallos as plenipotentiary for the signing of the Trade Agreement.
