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

Department’s April 29, 7 p.m.

Your April 30, 4 p.m.

Keep close watch on situation and cable Department developments. The Department does not wish to be placed in the position where it can be criticised for failure to urge upon President Chamorro the careful fulfillment of his duty to prevent expeditions being organized on territory of Nicaragua, and his duty to remain strictly neutral in any struggle between Tinoco and his opponents.
