The Consul at San José ( Chase ) to the Secretary of State

Your August 19, 3 p.m. It seems evident that Quiros has not disclosed the contents of cables referred to; and in view of the unrest and the desire of some persons to bring about an arrangement which will whitewash all those connected with Tinoco as against the wishes of many people who want a thorough investigation, and the lack of information of the people of the country as to the policy of the United States as stated in those instructions, am I authorized to request him to give them publicity, and if he will not, to do so myself?
