The Minister in Nicaragua ( Jefferson) to the Secretary of State


President Chamorro called me for consultation this morning with reference to cablegram received by him from Chargé d’Affaires Cuadra informing him that the Department had indicated to him its desire that Nicaragua pass a similar decree to Guatemala’s, concerning her attitude towards Germany. Please confirm at once by cable and briefly outline main points Department wishes embodied in decree in order that President Chamorro may submit it to Congress.

Nicaraguan Congress will probably adjourn next week.
