84. Legation’s 156 [146], May 27, 4 p.m. The Department considers it impracticable for the American Member of the High Commission to serve on the Claims Commission but is prepared to designate a suitable American member if notwithstanding Article two of the Law of December 3, 1926, the Nicaraguan Government feels that it can appoint another person and provide suitable compensation for him as discussed in the Department’s No. 57 of April 22, 4 p.m.

What arrangements are contemplated by President Moncada for the payment of the Commission’s awards?
