The Representative of the President ( Corrigan ) to the Secretary of State

150. Referring to the Department’s telegram No. 113, October 12, noon, Dr. Rodríguez, Venezuelan member of the Mediation Commission arrived here on October 9 and we had a conference on October 11 regarding the steps to be taken in view of the recent happenings in the Honduran-Nicaraguan frontier region concerning which we had already been informed by Zúfñga Montúfar, President of the Mediation Commission. We agreed tentatively upon the terms of a note to be sent to the Honduran and Nicaraguan Governments. I shall inform my colleagues of the Department’s suggestions so that the terms of the note now in preparation will be in agreement.

While tension exists would appreciate repetition of pertinent telegrams to me.
