“By instruction of the President, I am pleased to inform you that my Government sees with the most justified pleasure the realization of the preliminary studies of a work which, if executed, would mean for Nicaragua the assurance of a happy and brilliant future; and that consequently, in the fulfillment of a patriotic duty, grants the requested permission in the most ample form.”
