Minister Hale to the Secretary of State
San José, April 6, 1917, 11 a.m.
Relative April 5, 5 p.m. There is but one government here, that of Tinoco. I have used the words Tinoco and government interchangeably as in my March 31, 5 p.m. Please substitute Tinoco for government in my April 2, 4 p.m. There was no opposition to Tinoco in the election. I regret that I did not make myself clear.
