Description

The document is a transcribed copy of a newspaper article from the Washington Star concerning the American loan and interference in Honduras. The loan was made by a group of American bankers, and so the American government also has to ally itself with the Honduras government to protect the interests of its citizens. This interference relies on the backing of the Monroe Doctrine and the idea that the United States should promote peace and prosperity in its neighbors.
