The Minister in Guatemala (Whitehouse) to the Secretary of State

2. Assembly met this morning for third reading of Chacon’s resignation and amnesty bill, after which Reina Andrade assumed Provisional Presidency. Understand only changes in the Cabinet will be of those involved in the recent events. Skinner Klee will remain at the Foreign Office and General Reyes goes to the Ministry of War. Call for elections is to be published shortly.

Everything rapidly returning to normal and I do not anticipate any further trouble. Under these circumstances hope that the Department will instruct me as soon as possible in the premises.
