File No. 817.812/183

The Secretary of State to Minister Jefferson


Your March 29, 2 p.m. Nicaraguan Government informs Minister Chamorro that, at your suggestion, it awaits the originals of the amendments to the Canal Convention before submitting the treaty to Congress.

On February 19 the amendments to the treaty and the proviso adopted by the Senate were textually telegraphed you for communication to the President. There therefore appears no reason to delay action. Report by cable.
