[Received September 19.]
Sir: I have the honor to transmit herewith, for the Department’s information, a copy of a note which I addressed to the Foreign Office on August 25, 1927, informing the Nicaraguan Government of the nomination of General McCoy to be Chairman of the Commission to supervise the elections of 1928, and that General McCoy had come to Nicaragua as the personal representative of the President of the United States with the rank of Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary; and also a copy and translation of the reply received from the Minister for Foreign Affairs under date of August 26, 1927. It will be noted that Dr. Cuadra Pasos states that President Diaz has instructed him to say that the President accepts with pleasure the suggestion of the President of the United States, that General McCoy will be duly appointed as chairman of the commission to supervise the elections, and that the Government will endeavor to give him every assistance in carrying out his mission.
I have [etc.]
