417.11 R 55/8

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

No. 429

Sir: I have the honor to advise the Department that on receipt of its No. 228, of May 14, 1927 (File No. So 417.11 R 55/4), by a personal visit the attention of the Foreign Office was called to my Note No. 70, of March 4, 1927, a copy of which accompanied the Legation’s despatch [Page 464]No. 372, of March 4, 1927, as enclosure No. 2,60 there having been no “further developments” in the matter since the date of the above-mentioned despatch.

The result has been a note from the Foreign Office, a copy of which, with translation, form enclosures number 1 and 2 with this despatch.61 It may be noted that assurances have been given that at the next session of Congress an amendment of the law as indicated will be proposed with what would seem to be good prospect of ultimate success of the measure.

This Legation will not fail to “follow this matter closely and energetically with a view to obtaining the desired amendment,” or to keep the Department promptly and fully advised as to the progress of the case.

I have [etc.]

Charles C. Eberhardt
