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

271. I laid your telegram 159, November 12, 3 p.m., before President Moncada last night. He has just told me that he would immediately give Dr. Sacasa cabled instructions in the matter and direct him to say that it was not the intention of the Government of Nicaragua to proceed in an illegal manner when it issued the decree reported upon in my 268, November 9, 1 p.m., nor to terminate its contract with the railway management.
