Memorandum by the Assistant Chief of the Division of Latin American Affairs (Beaulac)

The Honduran Chargé d’Affaires brought this note30 and its enclosure31 in today and pointed out that, in sending it, his Government had no intention to create an incident—in fact it wanted to avoid an incident. The Honduran Government merely felt obliged to keep its record in the case of the Swan Islands clear, following the publication of the National Geographic Society map referred to.

I told Señor Cáceres that we would receive his communication in the same spirit.
