The Minister of Nicaragua to the Secretary of State.

[Translation.]

Mr. Secretary: I have the honor to inform your excellency that I have just now received a cablegram from my minister for foreign affairs by which he advises me that the Government of Nicaragua, actuated by the inclination it always had toward attending the forthcoming Second Peace Conference at The Hague, has been pleased to decide that our legislative assembly, now holding an extraordinary session, will authorize the signing of the protocol of adhesion to the Arbitration Convention of 1899, and has appointed our minister at Paris, Señor Don Crisanto Medina, to be delegate of Nicaragua to the said conference.

Be pleased, etc.,

Luis F. Corea.
