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

41. Referring to Department’s telegram No. 22, April 14, 7 p.m. The suggestion I made in telegram No. 39, April 11, noon, concerning a naval vessel cruising in the vicinity of Honduras was based on the belief that the moral effect would be good in the event of an outbreak of hostilities on the north coast. The suggestion was not prompted by nor communicated to either the Honduran authorities or any American citizen.
