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

222. President Diaz has just shown me a curt telegram of resignation from Chamorro, presumably called forth by the telegrams referred [Page 360]to in my telegram of August 31, 3 p.m. It is not known how this will affect Chamorro’s declared intention of leaving Europe for Nicaragua via the United States about September 14th.

Diaz has replied requesting explanation of the ex-President’s reasons for resignation.
