The Minister in Nicaragua (Nicholson) to the Secretary of State

No. 1252

Sir: I have the honor to report that the Nicaraguan Foreign Minister has referred to his conversations with Secretary Hull at Havana relative to action in connection with the advancement of mediation proceedings regarding the Nicaraguan-Honduran boundary dispute, and stated that the Secretary had indicated his desire to proceed expeditiously toward settlement. Dr. Argüello added that Nicaragua is anxious to be a member of the Central American fraternity in presenting a united front of peace to the totalitarian states, and that settlement of this question would be very helpful.

I indicated my knowledge that upon the Secretary’s return to Washington steps had been taken with regard to the mediation commission, and that naturally the United States was equally anxious with Nicaragua to see the proceedings progress.

Respectfully yours,

Meredith Nicholson
