File No. 6775/113.

The President of Nicaragua to President Roosevelt.


With genuine satisfaction I have received your important telegram of the 28th instant, in which Your Excellency is pleased to interpose your powerful mediation to uphold the peace of these Republics.

I am gratified to see that on this occasion, as on others heretofore, Your Excellency displays the same noble spirit that has ever animated you in the cause of Central American peace, and as you invite me to bring my contribution to the success of this admirable purpose, I have pleasure in saying to Your Excellency that I gladly accept [Page 640] the invitation, since any plan that aims at such elevated ends will be most favorably received and most earnestly and frankly supported by me.

J. S. Zelaya.
