The Acting Secretary of State to the American Minister.

[Telegram—Paraphrase.]

To the Department it appears that either the first or third plan of confirming the presidency of Diaz would accord with Martinez’s note of November 5, 1910, to Dawson, and also the Assembly’s decree of December 31, 1910, electing Diaz Vice President. Make suitable expression of this Government’s satisfaction with the Diaz Government’s assurance of its desire to continue with the program.

Wilson.
