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

337. Department’s November 17, 7 p.m. Although the decree does not so state, Hill says that it is simply an amplification of the [Page 469]1926 law creating the Claims Commission and therefore embraces only claims against the Nicaraguan Government accruing from October 25, 1925 to June 30, 1926 [1927]. He adds that provision could be made for any other claims in the law extending the power of the Claims Commission, to be brought up at the next session of Congress if it is considered advisable.
