The Minister in Costa Rica (Hornibrook) to the Secretary of State

86. The Minister for Foreign Affairs51a has just informed me that he has received a threatening note from the German Minister accredited to this Government pertaining to the proposed agenda of the Conference to be held at Habana. The Minister expressed the resentment of his Government at the tone of the document. He also read to me another note from the Minister of Germany protesting in vigorous and insulting terms against propaganda unfriendly to Hitler. It was alleged therein that the present Government of Costa Rica is in entire sympathy with the propaganda being circulated in San José and the provinces.
