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

258. Department’s No. 141 October 7, 6 p.m. President Moncada has just told me that Mr. Kennedy, local manager of the Pacific Railway, notified him this morning that the White Corporation will terminate its management on November 9. I have discussed this with the President and agree with him that the situation which would be thus created would seriously jeopardize the affairs of the railway, and I concur in his hope that the corporation will continue its management until this entire matter has been adjusted. I am sending this telegram with President Moncada’s knowledge.
