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

313. The President will appoint Doctor Enoc Aguado as the Liberal member of the Claims Commission. I consider this an excellent selection. The choice was made from a list of three names presented by Doctor Carlos Morales.67

I think that a measure giving the American member of the Claims Commission the veto power could be pushed through Congress but I still feel that such a measure would be politically inexpedient and that it would be unnecessary in view of the high character of the Nicaraguan member[s] of the Commission. The Nicaraguan members would of course take much more interest in the Commission’s work if they had a real voice in its decisions.

  1. Personal representative of General Moncada.
