AMERICAN LEGATION, 
Tegucigaipa, August 31, 1912. 
 I have learned that about the middle of last July the President informed
Mr. Valentine by cable that Mr: Greely would be permitted to collect wharfage
pending final settlement, provided the wharf be sold to the Government, as
it did not want to construct a new wharf. No reply was received for fifteen
days and the Government proceeded, in accordance with decree No. 30 of the
10th ultimo, to construct a new wharf. Travelers from the north have advised
him that work on the new wharf has already begun.
