The Chargé in Nicaragua (Munro) to the Secretary of State

287. After the publication of the decree referred to in my telegram of October 19, 10 a.m., the Liberals brought me data which they had not hitherto presented showing clearly that it has not been the practice to give 60 days’ notice before holding elections. I therefore discussed the matter again with the President and he has promised to issue a new decree calling the supplementary elections for November 20th, which will permit the Liberal Senators and Deputies to be present at the opening of Congress.
