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

95. Legation’s 174, June 25, 3 p.m. The plan contemplated by President Moncada would appear to afford a practicable method for initiating action with respect to pending claims and the Department [Page 684] is now prepared to nominate the American member of the temporary commission when it shall have had the opportunity to examine the proposed decree establishing the provisional commission.

As it is important that the Conservative member of the commission shall be fully representative of the Conservative Party and presumably should be designated by the Junta Directiva, the Department would be glad to receive by telegraph an expression of your views with respect to the present organization of the party and the representative status of the Junta.
